The curious life of Josh Anderson started on Six Nations in Ontario, Canada where he spent his first 20 years. Having a kind of upbringing sometimes called unschooled, Josh was taught basic literacy and numeracy while his own interests carried him towards science, art and philosophy. After learning web design (c. 1997) and music production, he got his GED in 2004. He spent a summer turning 21 and learning Spanish in Santa Ana, California, before moving to New York and working as a bartender at Deluxe (113th & Broadway) for a year. He attended BMCC (Borough of Manhattan Community College) for Fall 2005 and Spring 2006. The following semester, at 23, he transferred to Columbia's School of General Studies where non-traditional students find their school legs. In 2011, Josh graduated with a BA in Psychology, one year younger (27) than the average age of a student at GS.
Josh's work at the lab included various bits of web development, video work(shooting, editing, anchoring, voice work, animating, pupeteering), and music production.
Josh has many fond and formative memories of his 5 years at the lab. His last day was 03-May-2011, but he promises to visit from time to time. He now lives happily with his wife Emily, a literacy researcher, in Washington, DC.
