"One of my favorite things to do is listen to an idea and figure out how to kick it into high gear."

Welcome! If you've landed on this page, it means you're probably pretty rad.

I'm Josh, and I'm co-founder at StrategyHack. We teach enterprise teams to collaborate with the startup community and create new markets for growth through live-action, hands-on workshops with real startups.

I also help run Startup Grind NYC, a global community of startup founders designed to educate, inspire, and connect entrepreneurs.

In the past, I've helped build marketing machines for teams in the event managementworkforce developmentIP protection, and community organization industries.

When not hustling professionally, I'm a mentor with GalvanizePer ScholasSigma Phi Epsilon at NYU, and with Startup Institute.

I also run a couple Meetup groups for newcomers to the NYC startup community and for displaced Texans living in New York.

My claims to fame: I sat front row for Hamilton (original cast), I have an irrational fear of umbrellas, and I remember the quadratic formula. Go ahead -- test me.
