Josh was born in Beloit, Wi. and is a die-hard Packers fan. He has always been involved in sports and has trained in many different martial arts. In 2008 he pursued a career as a MMA and Kickboxing fighter and moved to Houston to train with former UFC Fighter Sam Hoger. After numerous injuries, Josh transferred the skills he had developed through the fine dining industry, where he learned a high level of customer service, to the roofing industry. One of the first things Josh noticed was that many contractors in the business had poor skills in communication, follow-up and customer service. He saw a great need for improvement and began to focus on processes to help others learn to strive for great customer service. As Josh explains, “While the construction industry is ever-changing, one thing remains the same: customers want to be taken care of and that will forever be my goal.” Josh loves a great game of volleyball, a good meal and traveling all over the world. He proposed to his girlfriend on a beach in Greece and is set to wed on a beach Mexico this year. He is “dad” to a rescued dog, Jordy Nelson, and a giant Maine Coon cat, Lambeau.
