The Des Moines Register – Des Moines, Iowa

In Des Moines, there is opportunity. There is an older generation who will hand over the keys to trustworthy young-professionals. Josh gives voice to my generation in a classic media. I love picking up The Des Moines Register and seeing stories written by Josh. I have had the pleasure of hanging out with Josh a few times and he always has an intelligent, compassionate take on culture, current events, religion, sports, etc. I know it is part of his job, but his job seems to be more of a part of him than the other way around. He is authentic in his writing because he has immersed himself in the community he reports on. Aside from his blinding love of Kansas basketball, I think this guy is making Des Moines great. #makedesmoines
