Josh went to St. Petersburg in 2002 to study Russian as an exchange student. Returning to Russia the following year, he was soon hired by an international law firm to do drafting and editing work. After living, working and traveling in Russia for about 3.5 years, Josh and his then future wife Margarita moved back to the U.S., where they now live in Denver, Colorado. Since returning to the states, Josh has worked as a translator and editor for the Eastern European offices of an international law firm based out of Germany. He plans on studying law or business in the near future.
