About Josh

My surname is pronounced "yawn-uh-check."

I'm a husband, father, entrepreneur, small business owner, and cut from the cloth of getting things done. I was born & raised in Houston, TX. My family and I moved to the rural town of Cat Spring, TX when I was 11-years-old. I attended Bellville High School where I was class president, a member of the student council, I attained my black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and I was elected funniest in our graduating class. I moved to Austin, TX in 1994 to attend St. Edward's University and have lived in Austin ever since. I've been married to Elise since 2001, and together we have two beautiful daughters. I've done a lot of fun & exciting things since passing through the ivory towers of the university.

I wake up at 4:59 a.m. and I run. I do this 5-6 times a week. I'm a runner. Running has honed by persistence and indomitable will. I qualified for the Boston Marathon in the first marathon that I ever ran. One day I would like to run the Grand Canyon from rim to rim.
