Meet Board & Brush Barboursville Owner

Josh Ruby

Josh & Christy Ruby have always been passionate about entrepreneurship. Since 2004, they've owned BRAVO Live DJ, a DJ company that performs over 200 shows annually. Prior to this, Josh had a background in "corporate America," with roles including sales, management and even banking.

The Rubys heard about Board & Brush for the first time through a business broker who was assisting in the sale of the Barboursville studio. The previous owners had ample life changes in a very short period, and when they met Josh & Christy, they knew the studio would be in excellent hands! What Josh & Christy love most about Board & Brush is the opportunity to create fun and memorable experiences for their customers.

Josh & Christy were high-school sweethearts who met in 1992, married in 1996, and now have four children. Now that their kids are getting older, they are excited about bringing more entertainment opportunities to the entire "Mountain State”
