A lifelong comics fan, Josh credits comics with helping him learn to read and, more importantly, to love reading. That in turn enabled him to attend Northwestern University on a National Merit Scholarship, and it eventually led him to career in the comics industry. He’s been Director of Publishing for Legendary Comics and Account Manager for iVerse Media. He’s worked as a Game Writer for Disney Interactive and written numerous stories for DC Comics featuring iconic characters like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. He also co-created the graphic novel series and nationally syndicated comic strip, Mail Order Ninja. However Josh is best known as the Founder of Reading With Pictures, a nonprofit that promotes the use of comics in the classroom. He now serves as Executive Director of the organization, overseeing the creation of content like the “graphic textbook,” Comics That Make Kids Smarter, and promoting RWP’s mission all around the world as a Comics Ambassador for the US State Department.
