Josh Dawson is a recent graduate of Thompson Rivers University's journalism program.

Born and raised in Prince George, he made the trip south to attend university in Kamloops, where he's remained for the past five years. After being plucked straight out of school to begin at Castanet Kamloops, he has enjoyed getting to know the ins and outs of the industry.

When he's not in the office, he spends his free time working on video editing projects, shooting short films, and finally reading that one book he set aside a few months ago.
