Joshua Toenyes is a software engineer, entrepreneur, US Navy veteran, and Billings, Montana native. He started his software engineering journey as a teenager in the late 90s by teaching himself C, C++, and early web technologies. He also attended Cisco Networking Academy and electronics courses offered at the Billings Career Center.
After graduating from Billings West High School, Joshua joined the US Navy as an Electronics Technician. He served aboard the USS Bunker Hill (CG-52), and at US Third Fleet Command Headquarters in San Diego, California. He completed two overseas deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom and participated in multiple international military readiness exercises. After serving for eight years, he honorably departed the service as a First Class Petty Officer (E-6). He was awarded three Navy Achievement Medals and the Navy Commendation Medal. During his service, he also earned an A.S. Degree in Computer and Information Systems from San Diego City College.
Following his service in the military, Joshua attended the Jacobs School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He graduated in 2015, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science (Magna Cum Laude). While attending UCSD, he also worked as a Network Engineer for Serco, responsible for the design and installation management of the wireless and telehealth data networks for the US Naval Hospital in Guam. He also worked as an independent software engineer until completing his course of study at UCSD. After graduating from UCSD he moved back to Billings, Montana.
In 2016, Joshua co-founded Cardsetter, a software startup that provides a content management system and website platform for small businesses and content creators. Cardsetter continues to experience incredible growth and is actively backed by organized angel capital in Montana. Today, he serves as the CEO and technical lead at Cardsetter and as the Technical Advisor for Check This Out, a software startup in Bozeman, Montana.

My word of the year for 2021 and the day, I guess, is acceptance. It's all about breathing and accepting how difficult things can be and then persevering through them. That's something that I've learned and relearn every day. That's my wisdom.
