Hi I'm Josh. I'm a man with a wide view of the world, its people and cultures. I have made it my mission in life to see and experience as much as I can. I love to travel at every opportunity and I have been to many places around the world. I have been all over the U.S. I currently live in Taipei, Taiwan but I'm from Southern California Los Angeles, CA USA. I also have lived in Germany for 2 years in Berlin & Bamberg. I have also spent about 12 months traveling Asia in the last two years. A list of my travels are to Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Mexico, Taiwan X 6, China X 4, Hong Kong, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore X 3, Vietnam, Japan, Korea X 6, Thailand X 4, and Cambodia to name a few. In my free time I like to keep busy. I'm a avid foodie always exploring new foods and places in each city I live. Most my my local friends cannot believe how much I know about Taipei and places they knew nothing about. I am always the person offering my knowledge to travelers and friends visiting by being their guide. In addition I'm also a photographer specializing in event and nightlife industry. I have also worked closely with the LGBTQ community and events. I'm always looking forward to my next adventure where ever that may lead.
