Josh Taylor joins Chicago House AC as the Broadcast & Content Manager. He will focus on managing broadcast partnership relations, producing video and photography content for Chicago House AC's social media and digital platforms, and working with community engagement efforts with non-profit partners.

Before moving to Chicago, Josh graduated from the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting at Full Sail University. While studying as a full-time student, Josh worked a couple of internships with soccer teams in Orlando, Florida. He worked as a game-day operations intern with the Orlando SeaWolves, spending time helping guests in the fan assistance zone and assisting with game-day promotions from sponsors during the club's inaugural season in the MASL in 2018-2019. Josh also did a digital media content internship with Inter Orlando Academy. He worked on videography and photography on game days and created high-quality content on the team's social media channels for Inter Orlando Academy TV during the 2020 UPSL Fall season. Josh also contributed as a freelance writer for various sports blogs such as SB Nation's The Mane Land covering Orlando City SC, the Orlando Pride, and covering the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup tournament.

Josh's passion and love for sports push him to pursue a career in the sports broadcasting industry. During his time at Full Sail University, Josh called play-by-play for the Rollins College soccer and baseball teams. Josh was also a sideline reporter for the Rollins College men's basketball team. Josh's favorite moments from his time in school were putting efforts behind the scenes from editing highlights, writing scripts, building a rundown, and finally producing a live show.

Before joining the House, Josh spent eight years working various roles at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. His most recent role was working with Disney Vacation Club as an operations coordinator and sales assistant from 2013 to 2020. He coordinated all sales areas, including scheduling appointments, managing incentives, and was part of the Disney Vacation Club core training team. Josh also worked in Guest Relations at Disney's Animal Kingdom park and was a merchandise cast member at the World of Disney store at Disney Springs.

Josh was born in Germany but played many sports in high school, from soccer, football, and was a hurdler in track & field. Josh has two bachelor's degrees: one from Full Sail University and another in small business management from the University of Texas at San Antonio. For fun, Josh enjoys hanging out with friends, playing video games, and singing karaoke songs.

Josh is excited to be joining the front office staff at the House and looks forward to becoming a part of the Chicago community.
