Joshua has helmed campaigns for companies like Ford, Starbucks, Samsung, Kia, Volkswagen, Intel etc, He’s also excelled as a writer in the commercial world - having penned the script for his Match.com commercial “Aquarium” which was acquired by the brand for a special father’s day broadcast. He also wrote and directed a campaign for ASU which collected two commercial Emmys and wrote a portion of the award-winning “Makers” campaign for Intel.

His most recent short “Housecall” won the Grand Prix at Tres Courts Film Festival and was nominated for Best Comedy of 2020 by Vimeo. All five of his short films have received Vimeo Staff Picks. And his 2015 drama “La Carnada” premiered at Tribeca and won Best of Fest at Palm Springs.

His photography has appeared in multiple publications and galleries after the success of his first multi-media art exhibition, The Untitled Underwear Project and now sells in galleries across the world. He's now in the midst of his second multi-media art project titled The Untitled Sports Project.
