Josh joined the BBI team after moving to Florida from Missouri, and we're beyond thrilled to have him here. He's brought a significant amount of knowledge regarding print and direct mail into the production facility. He heads the majority of pressing projects with production and is the primary reason BBI is able to turn around products quickly and efficiently.

We asked Josh to comment on the significant change from Missori to Florida and so far he loves it. The only downside? Hurricanes, which he got a taste of when Irma rolled through the area. But so far, he's enjoying it.

Outside of work, Josh enjoys spending time with his kids.
