One of Joshua's latest pursuits has been solving the world's database woes with his open-source DotNetMigrations project. He always has at least a few top-secret projects in the works that will all be amazing and brilliant when (and if) they ever launch.
The rest of his time is spent chillin' with his best friend and wife, Kristina, and their buddy Avery, a lab who thinks he may just be human.
