In his B.C. (Before Child) life, Josh Conley once lived in Japan, set foot on Antarctica and recorded a witnessed disc golf hole-in-one. The love-child of John Hughes and Oscar the Grouch, he wrote the novel Achieving Umami without fulling understanding the rules of hyphen-ation. In his free time, he makes beer and generously calls himself a ‘Friday’ NYT crossworder. He relies on his beautiful wife to bring home the bacon, which is a bit presumptuous, since she is a vegetarian. Meanwhile, he makes fun of their firstborn at Parentithesis. A 4th Conley joined the fray in August.
