Resume of Josh Withers
I am a tech-smart, business-savvy, family man, who’s single greatest gift is that I’m not scared of the number one thing everyone is scared of: public speaking. In former lives I’ve been a broadcast radio engineer, computer technician, breakfast radio host, technology news producer, and most recently a marriage celebrant.
