In 2019, Josh accepted a full-time position at the Arkansas State Hospital in Little Rock, but remains at Hendrix as a part-time officer. On his off time, he enjoys working on computer hardware, reading fiction and nonfiction, playing PC games, hiking, listening to podcasts, and watching a variety of video content (Netflix, YouTube, Crunchyroll, etc.).
