Josh Peterson is from the rural wilds of Iowa. He loves the outdoors, conservationism and fresh air, so he moved to Los Angeles where there is none. He graduated college in '07 and is the process of applying to graduate schools that he can't afford. His training is in literary fiction, so he writes non-fiction. Josh writes comedy for web and stage shows, but he is not funny. Josh has a head but wears no hat. He writes for PlanetGreen and is thrilled to be writing for Treehugger.
