Since joining Mediacurrent in 2015, Josh has grown as a senior developer in Drupal 7, Drupal 8, and now Drupal 9, providing leadership and development across an array of projects and clients. He is also leading efforts on mobile development using the open-source, cross-platform framework Flutter. Aside from web development, Josh also has a passion for expanding his knowledge in iOS and Android application development using Swift and Flutter, which can be a great counterpart to a decoupled (aka. headless) Drupal build.

In the mid 2000’s, Josh gained valuable knowledge around the foundations and concepts of web design, development and programming at Albright College. He landed his first web developer position circa 2008, where he began learning how to leverage HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL to build dynamic web applications was first exposed to the CMS and open-source world with a few small-scale Joomla! projects. Drupal was evaluated for these projects, but Joomla was chosen as the platform they would leverage. During time at the next company, he was involved in building custom PHP-driven content management systems, which eventually would help to ease the learning curve of learning and working with Drupal, along with the previous Joomla experience. Before Josh was hired into his next role in 2012, Drupal had already been selected as the corporate CMS of choice. Josh realized the growth potential of Drupal and grabbed the project by the horns and really self-taught himself as he worked through the development tasks. During this time, Josh gained 2.5 years of Drupal 7 experience and served as the Drupal lead developer.

Thanks to Mediacurrent's 100% remote culture, he is based in either Pennsylvania or South Carolina with his wife, two sons and one daughter.
