Joshua is a visual filmmaker, who comes from an artistic background. Growing up, he could be found bringing his visual imagination into life, in many art mediums. In high school, he became inspired to pursue filmmaking, and started editing his very first short films. In 2008, Joshua followed his creative dream, and started his journey as a filmmaker, formally studying Motion Pictures & Television at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
During his four years at AAU, Joshua transformed from an amateur filmmaker to a professional. With an emphasis in Film Editing, Joshua learned the craft of cutting narrative stories. As a student (and later on as a working professional), he has edited dozens of film projects, including short films, commercials, music videos, trailers, sizzle reels, corporate videos and more - some of which can be seen on the Portfolio page.
After graduating college with honors in 2012, Joshua made the move to Los Angeles, to join the film industry. 7 years later, he has built a resume that includes experience working freelance in post-production at over 20 different production companies including Sony Pictures, Dreamworks, and Legendary. He has also gained experience working on multiple television shows for channels including truTV, CBS, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, and Oprah Winfrey's Network. In addition, Joshua has worked on a handful of sizzle reels for television shows in Development, Electronic Press Kits for major feature films, television promo spots, music videos, corporate videos, and internet video content.
Joshua's ambition has always been to become an Editor of major feature films and / or scripted television shows. In 2016, he found his way into major feature film editorial, and has since worked in post-production on 3 major blockbuster feature films: The Great Wall (2017), Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017), and Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019). He recently earned membership into the Motion Picture Editor's Guild, IATSE Local 700, as a Union Assistant Editor. Joshua is always on the lookout for any opportunities to demonstrate his talent, knowledge and passion for scripted film and television post-production, and continues to seek Union Assistant Editor or Apprentice positions. He also accepts opportunities to edit smaller low-to-no budget short film-related projects, such as music videos, commercials, or narratives. Please see the Contact page to get in touch!
