#Tesla   #P100D  
The Model S P100D with Ludicrous mode is the third fastest accelerating production car ever produced, with a 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds. However, both the LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder were limited run, million dollar vehicles and cannot be bought new. While those cars are small two seaters with very little luggage space, the pure electric, all-wheel drive Model S P100D has four doors, seats up to 5 adults plus 2 children and has excepti...

Yeah that "eligible if bought after" thing was annoying.

I love when my products upgrade for me, instead of me having to upgrade my products.

Want to help make smarter cities?
We want to study building new, better cities. The world is full of people who aren’t realizing their potential in large part because their cities don't provide the opportunities and living...

Story
Tagline
Christian. Husband. Dad. Geek. Traveler. Vizsla chair.
Introduction
Josh was born in Topeka, Kansas to Mike and Colleen on the "coldest day of the century" for the city, a chilling -23 degrees F. He has a younger sister, Cara, and has always had a dog around for a four-legged companion.

Personal Life
Active as a boy, he could often be seen riding his bike with friends, playing around at the pool, or hosting living room wrestling tournaments and boxing matches. Weather not permitting, the latest installment of a Final Fantasy game could always keep him entertained.

When it came time for school, he excelled in technical subjects throughout primary and secondary, and always balanced these well with art and music, learning to play various saxophones and brass instruments. Soccer and football took up extra time until marching band came along in high school, so he found his physical outlet running sprints, even going to state his senior year as the starting runner in the 4x100 relay.

During college he was active in a campus ministry, interning for a summer and leading a number of small groups. He was a founding member of the church's board of directors, serving as secretary for eight years. Today, he continues in a role of coordinating and leading worship and overseeing the web and social media activity for the church of 100 members.

In 2003, he met Shana, who moved from the East coast to pursue her MFA at KU, and they began dating in early 2004 - and were married by the end of the year! They enjoy traveling the world and relaxing on beaches with their friends as often as possible.

Recently, they welcomed their son Sabin into the world and are tremendously excited to see things in new ways with him. He's the first grand baby on both sides, so he is in for an exceptional amount of attention.They are all living in Lawrence, Kansas with their dog, Zoe.

Education and Career

Off to an early start, he began taking college courses at Washburn University while still at Topeka West High School, where he graduated in 1997. He continued at Washburn for three years, studying Physics and Mathematics. After participating in an internship at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory during the summer of 1999, he decided to transfer the following year to study Mechanical Engineering at the University of Kansas. Coursework concluded in the Fall of 2002 and he graduated with the class of 2003 from both schools with two Bachelor of Science degrees. Currently, he is just two classes from wrapping up his MBA at Baker University, which will finish at the end of April 2015.

Hired in June of 2002 as an Applications Engineer at Grundfos Pumps Corporation in Olathe, he caught on fast and helped the group serve customers around the USA. Three years later, the company opened a local division for R&D and he joined two others to help build a regional headquarters for product development. After five years, he shifted gears to focus on customer insights, product usability and design, where he helped bring better usability and experiences into existing and future products. The company decided in late 2014 to close the division to focus on other strategies, allowing him to have extra time at home taking care of his son until the next opportunity opens.

The Douglas County fair that happens annually near the end of July / beginning of August is a great outing for families: food, petting zoo, demolition derby & tractor pull, music, rides. Great time! Just be ready to walk, as parking gets limited fast.

I came here all the time as a kid; they no longer have a pool, and the building was inaccessible on a Sunday (no bathrooms :-( !).

The food is truly amazing. Highly recommend a wild burger with a tiger shake. The place is very small, so seating is tight and the staff are few (so there may be a wait). Also, bring cash, because they don't take cards!

Buffet for lunch was alright; the waffles were stale and some items were not labeled or mixed together (fried chicken and catfish in the same tub?). Price was ok. Our bill was inaccurate, but favorable. Outdoor seating was nice.

The beer selection was limited, but not bad. Food was just OK; I ordered the kale salad with chicken, but when it arrived, it was made with Romaine. When I pointed out the mistake, the waitress said "That's the kale salad." Yeah, thanks.

Sports meet sushi. Really good rolls (cherry blossom!!! yum) and a variety of seating.
