His coverage of previously unknown, or unloved and abandoned places has gained him a lot of attention while it has also attracted controversy.
As he continues his career, it is expected that his wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
There is almost no information about Josh’s past before his rise to fame online on YouTube, as he prefers to keep most about that part of his life away from the public. It is known that he is of French Canadian and Ukrainian descent, was raised in Rhode Island by his parents alongside two brothers; there are no details shared about his education.
It is known that at a young age he loved to dance and enjoyed breakdancing, which led him to learn more and develop his skills in the street dance. Eventually, he saw the potential for sharing his skills as a b-boy through the website YouTube. The website is one of the most popular on the internet with it being ranked as second in terms of traffic by Alexa Internet. Users can create and upload their own videos to their own channel for others to view.
Over the years, the website has grown in terms of content with numerous types of videos now available, some of which include educational videos, vlogs, television show clips, movie trailers, live streams, and many more.
Exploring with Josh
His interests in breakdancing would recede as he grew older, and his ties with his b-boy group also started to fade, leading him to grow tired of making breakdancing videos on YouTube. One of the other interests which he developed in the meantime was vlogging, as he wanted to share some of his travel experiences online.
This led him to create his second and main channel, which would become Exploring with Josh. The channel started out with him doing vlogs of himself travelling to various locations in the US including road trips and going cross country, and indulging in adventurous activities. However, he noticed that he started gaining attention when he documented himself being inside an abandoned asylum, in which he found creepy items. With the interest in this vlog, he decided to put more focus on those types of videos, researching other abandoned locations he could visit.
Rise to Fame and Recent Endeavors
As he created more videos of himself taking footage of abandoned or taboo places, his popularity on the site grew, and soon he had over three million subscribers. His popularity and the income he gained from his videos would help fund his further travels around the world with his camera crew. Some of his most popular videos include finding an abandoned bank, an abandoned mansion used for cultivating marijuana, his abandoned middle school, and an abandoned hospital. However, his videos have gained a lot of negative criticism as well, especially since he shoots videos without doing a lot of research, nor does he prepare a script before speaking.
This leads to a lot of moments where viewers call him dense and uneducated. He’s also been criticized for not focusing on aspects of the abandoned location which could have been very interesting for collectors, or those who know the historical values of some of the items left behind. One of his biggest controversies is that he reportedly sets up his own videos, putting in items beforehand to make them interesting. He’s been accused of putting fake blood in the locations he visits, or printing out blueprints, and placing them inside the abandoned locations to make it seem that he has just found them.
Due to all of these criticisms, he decided to do things more naturally, making his channel more of a vlog channel while looking for abandoned locations around the world.
Personal Life and Social Media

A lot of sources believe that he is single, as his work likely doesn’t give him time to pursue any long term association. He also hasn’t been seen in public with any potential romantic partners.
