Josh Ivanoff - President

Born in Iowa, writing and drawing were always Josh's passion. Preferring imaginary friends to real ones, stories were a huge part of his early life. Over the years some of these stories were turned into books and comics. While in college at the University of Northern Iowa, Josh joined Cathartic Comics as an artist and co-writer of "Gai-Jin" (along with long-time collaborator Jason Lees) as part of Cathartic Jams #1. It was in college that Josh first had the idea for "The Box" and started work on an outline that is now being turned into the first seven book series.

Josh is currently based out of Fort Worth, Texas and when not working on what of the brands above, he can be found spending time with his son and wife.
