About Josh

Founder of Jtree SEO and 3 popular outdoor recreation websites for California, Idaho and Oregon.

I have over 15 years of website development, design, hosting, maintenance, operations, analytics, security and search engine optimization experience.

I'm also a virtual wikipedia of natural hot springs data, locations, conditions... etc.

My career in the digital marketing/SEO space started with a San Franciso-based startup during the original dot-com boom. The experience opened my eyes to the world of optimizing websites for search engines, where I was fortunate to work on a number of SEO projects for companies like Oracle and AOL.

Prior to launching Jtree in 2009, I provided consulting to a number of companies. As the demand for a service that assisted businesses with reaching organic audiences on search engines increased, I soon realized the need for a company purely dedicated to SEO.


Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. - John Muir
