Josiah grew up in Norwich, VT and graduated from Hanover High in 1999. He left the Upper Valley to attend Northeastern University where he studied Music Technology and participated in the Residential Education program as a Resident Assistant for his last three years of undergraduate work. Directly after graduating he took a position as Residence Director in Northeastern's Department of Residential Life and held that position for three years. There he developed Northeastern's national recognition of Alcohol Awareness Week and wrote the Department of Residential Life's programming model for the Resident Assistant staff. He enjoys composing and playing music, learning new team games, and recently developed an enthusiasm for golf. At Dartmouth he hopes to grow deep into the student and professional community as he develops further as a young professional.
