Josh Linville



Mr. Linville grew up in the concrete jungle that is Los Angeles. Desiring more greenery in his life, he headed north to the Bay Area, where he went to college and eventually settled. In 2013 he married a Hornet, but now Jet blue runs through his veins. From 2015-2018, Mr. Linville and his spouse braved frigid winters in the great state of Minnesota, but eventually returned the Golden state. He is the father of two lovely children and enjoys poetry, sports journalism, and conversations about existential questions.
