Joshua Chessin-Yudin – “Tragically Hipster”

Josh was born in Seattle, Washington and if you asked him where specifically, he’d tell you instantly that he was raised in Fremont.  This past June, Josh graduated from The University of Washington with a double major in Drama Performance and Spanish and also was able to help out the UW Men’s basketball team as a team manager during his freshman and sophomore years.  Since he can remember he has been actively involved in the arts–both in the theater and lately on film–and hopes to continue to find opportunities to act in Seattle and one day in Los Angeles and New York.  When he isn’t exercising his artistic side through song writing, poetry, and script writing he prefers the literal use of exercising by taking long runs and playing basketball, baseball, and football with his friends.  He is a movie junkie as well and aspires to be cast in a Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee, Spike Jonze, and/or Paul Thomas Anderson movie one day.
