Josh moved away from home on Cape Cod, MA at 17 years old to train with pros like his idol, Dave Mirra, in Greenville, NC. At 20, he competed in the X-Games for the first time after winning his first pro contest.
Less than a year later, he fell and hit his head and an MRI revealed a large brain tumor that was taking up a major portion of his brain. Not knowing what to do or how to navigate the health system, Athlete Recovery Fund stepped up and provided financial assistance and guidance that ultimately saved his life. After a 6-hr surgery and Gamma Knife radiosurgery for a reccurence, Josh was back on his bike in no time.
Josh recovered well and became 10th overall in the 2016 UCI BMX Freestyle World Cup standings, not even a year out of ACL reconstructive surgery. Today, Josh travels across the country telling his story, coaching clients with their health goals, and has started a non-profit touring BMX, wellness, & live music event, called the Brainy BMX Stunt Shows.
