Where it all began
His voiceover artist roots began at a marketing company in Seattle, where he sold PSA's to businesses, and voiced those spots on the radio. He said "this is pretty cool," and the rest was history, because Josh found his calling.
Joshua is a former traveling singer/speaker/performer, and has received airplay on KCMS 105.3FM in Seattle. He loves his wife and two boys, and loves Jesus. He lives a life of deep gratitude and joy, because he's content and found his calling. He's a big fan of Superman, in case that wasn't clear already. Oh yeah...and he's deathly afraid of spiders. No really. Deathly. Don't judge him.
Joshua has done radio broadcasting, PSA's, and video production incorporating voice acting work in a career serving clients all over the world. He's also done jingles, because he used to be a singer.
