Josh is a Florida native that loves the outdoors. Since Josh was a child, he grew up fishing, surfing, playing golf, and just spending time out in the Florida sun. By the time Josh was in high school, he realized that a job outdoors was not going to be for him, so he went to college and received a horticultural degree and worked as a nursery man until he graduated. After college, Working in this field, of course gave Josh exposure to all of the local flora and fauna. So naturally becoming an ISA certified arborist was a logical step to take, furthering his understanding of his surroundings, and love for our environment. He’s proud to call Nassau County home and considers it a privilege to be able to serve his neighbors and friends.

Born in Fernandina Beach FL, raised in Woodbine GA. Grew up in the southeast area. My grandmother and mother were greenthumbs & started my passion for plants early. Went to college in Valdosta, GA where I started my horticulture studies in greenhouse management and plant propagation. 10(+) years in the horticulture field and 5 (+) years in landscape design in the southeast region. My specialty and passion is creating plants that thrive and do well in a salty environment, like the beach. 
In my spare time I enjoy gardening in my own yard, reading books, putting my feet in the sand, and playing with my daughter, Juniper. I have two cute pups and a kitty to keep me busy too. 
I am very excited and ready to start a new chapter with Gage tree care and extend the services that they offer.
