Josh's story

I've been a DIY kind of guy from very early. Growing up, I was taught by both of my parents to be industrious and resourceful. As the first in my family to attend college, I set out to see what the world was about. I studied archaeology at Indiana University before setting out on my travels. I've lived in Washington, D.C., Ireland, Eastern Oregon, and Indiana. I've always enjoyed finding a respite, regardless of where I happened to be; a place that I could settle in, enjoy the atmosphere, the community, and some decent food and drink. Having experienced local bars, Irish pubs, and dive bars, just to name a few, I've always wanted to create that sort of space for myself, a space to share with others.
