Writer, Naughty Dog

Josh Scherr has been a staff writer at Naughty Dog since early 2014 and is currently co-writing UNCHARTED 4: A THIEF’S END.

Prior to his new role, he led the award-winning cinematics team for the first three UNCHARTED games as well as the JAK & DAXTER series. Josh has worn a number of proverbial hats over his 15 years at Naughty Dog, including story development and writing on the first two UNCHARTED games; he also supervised and co-wrote the UNCHARTED comic book with DC Comics.

After receiving his MFA degree in Animation from the USC School of Cinematic Arts in 1995, Josh spent the next six years working in feature film and commercial animation; eventually he came to his senses and joined Naughty Dog in 2001.

In his spare time, Josh enjoys playing with his daughter and wishing he had more spare time
