Josh Barnett

Raised in Cleveland by a family split between strict vegetarians and meat-eaters, Josh ended up somewhere in the middle. He moved to Chicago after college to swim in Lake Michigan during the summer and skulk around dive bars the rest of the year. He loves the NBA and the Cavs but has forbidden himself from getting too emotionally involved. Talk to him about your favorite hyper-regional potato chips, or better yet, pass him a bag.
