Combining creativity and intuition with strategic thinking, Joshua has developed marketing campaigns to promote various initiatives undertaken by businesses and non-profit organizations, including the Department of Education, NLAN, the AIDS Committee of Newfoundland and Labrador and Choices for Youth. He is also a published author (The Teenage Years… Mapped) and former columnist / editor of the St. John’s metro-trend newspaper Current.
Joshua gained media experience in radio and television before moving to print. Initially, at CBC Radio (NL), Joshua worked with youth on a show called New Voices, eventually becoming the host of a National CBC special called First Call. That was followed by six months with CBC-TV, rounding out four and a half years before he jumped to private broadcasting. At Steele Communications, Joshua was the producer, music director and host of a number one Saturday afternoon program called Fresh Focus on Radio Newfoundland (CJYQ, 930am). He was also the operations producer for the HitsFM (CKIX, 99.1FM) live broadcast from Benders on George every Saturday night. In June 2006 after doing the shows for almost five years, they had their final broadcasts.
A theatre and film production company, m0xY Productions, is also in the mix, for which Joshua is the Artistic Director. With two professional stage productions to its credit (Poor Super Man and Rope) as well as a few short films, the company focused on a new project – Just Himself: the story of Don Jamieson – in association with Odd Sock FIlms, starting in August 2008 through to 2011.
In spare time, Joshua is a news junkie, enjoys djing, writing, volunteering in the community and focusing on family and friends.
