This detailed profile examines Josh’s professional journey, his views on the industry, his personal life, and the values guiding him at work and beyond.

Professional Journey

Personal connections and a desire to engineer impactful products shaped Josh’s entry into the medical device industry. A graduate of the University of Colorado-Boulder, with an undergraduate and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering, Josh credits his family—his father an engineer and his sister a doctor—as influential in his career choice.

His professional path began with a summer internship facilitated by Meddux President Dave Schechter, which introduced him to the field and ignited his love for medical device development. This passion led him through various roles, from an entry-level engineer at TDC Medical, which later became Vention Medical, to a program manager and an international stint in Israel, setting up a facility to help local clientele develop novel technologies.

Now, Josh is the Director of Engineering at Meddux. He oversees projects and enjoys mentoring his team and launching impactful medical products.

Personal Interests

Away from the complexities of engineering, Josh finds balance in sports, music, and family life. An avid basketball player, Josh chose engineering over a potential college sports career. He also enjoys playing guitar and learning new skills while stumbling through home improvement projects.

Family is a cornerstone of Josh’s life. He met his wife in Israel, and together, they have embraced life in Colorado, where they look forward to raising their family. With a new baby on the way and a supportive network of family and friends, Josh treasures his time at home as much as his time at Meddux.
