Josh is the author of seven books.

He also writes & draws for a number of

publications, both online and in print.

He is the only one-time committee member of The Guild

of Food Writers who took-up skateboarding at

the age of fifty-one and is still shredding. He is no longer

on the committee, but still an enthusiastic member.


I have written and illustrated a number of books about food and travel. I have also started a small independent publishing venture, publishing both my own and other people's material.
