About Josh Melick
I am a life-long builder and an entrepreneur. I’ve always been technical and in the details, but I also try to be very pragmatic and as non-nerd as I can, much more focused on the real world than the virtual one.
I grew up in Northern California and spent most of my time outside. I have always been active with various adventures and I continue to live that way today. The Personal Interests page covers some of my adventures like motorcycle trips, extreme sports, or just my general travel nonsense (these days I tend to be just as interested in the Après Ski as the Ski itself, if you catch my drift…).
After having built different products and companies, I tend to think the most important skills are around story telling and vision. Stories without enough detail aren't believable. Too much detail and not enough vision doesn't work either. From this theme I end up spending most of my time around Sales & Marketing. So craft your story, show me it works, and pitch me on how we do it. Then let's go there together.
I love connecting with like-minded and passionate people, both professionally and personally. I have a lot of empathy and I love to help where I can. We all learn through discussion and iteration -- so let me know what problem you are working on and where you might be stuck. Openness and transparency are words I live by.
I am currently living in Los Angeles, although I have called the Bay Area home the majority of my life and will probably do so again at some point. But, I take any chance I get to go to New York, Europe, Mexico, or pretty much wherever! Hope to see you around!
