Josh Rogers grew up in Columbia, Missouri, which is right in the centre of the United States. He was an active student at school and went on to study Russian Literature and Philosophy at college. He wanted to get Russian under his belt and also thought that Philosophy might be a good way to approach law.
After a stint working on an US Aid project, he came out to Russia to work.
He is now a partner at KPMG which provides business and management consulting to large clients.
