Captivated by the majesty of Jurassic Park (they spared no expense, after all), Josh spent his childhood seeking to gain worldwide acclaim as an amateur paleontologist. However, he eventually came to realize that fossils were hard to come by in suburban Chicago. He switched gears, deciding to someday become a marine biologist…until he realized that Chicago has no oceans, either. So, Josh finally settled on a geographically-neutral career path: this time, the field of medicine. He headed off to Vanderbilt University to achieve his goal, until he totally changed his mind. Again.
Ultimately, Josh traded in the dream of becoming Dr. Hansel for a degree in Economics and a bounty of spreadsheets. After he got his degree, Josh brought his spreadsheets back to Chicago and happened upon Jellyvision, a magical place that made him feel at peace with his decision to move on from a career in fossil hunting.
When he isn’t tending to his Jelly-duties or his loving desk plant, Josh enjoys live music, going to museums, and his beloved Chicago sports teams. (If you’re wondering, yes—his Vandy roots have firmly entrenched him on Team Cutler.) He also loves plaid, understanding pop culture references, and attempting to cook, albeit poorly.
Cool story, Hansel.
Why I like to work at Jellyvision
It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again: the people. Everyone is kind, witty, and engaging, and they make coming to work a pleasure. Also, the catered lunches are a pretty sweet deal.
