His recent assignments include an upcoming series for DreamWorks Animation, producing and arranging the main theme for HBO’s Pod Save America, and scoring the Adult Swim pilot Three Busy Debras from director Anna Dokoza and Amy Poehler's Paper Kite Productions.

Joshua created the interactive ambisonic music for Google's Earth VR (available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive), which won a Cannes Lion for innovation and was recognized by Ars Technica as "VR's killer app."

On the web, Joshua's music has been featured in three Vimeo Staff Picks, including the viral animated hit Sidewalk, directed by Celia Bullwinkel. He also composed the score for the UnREAL spinoff The Faith Diaries, written and directed by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, streaming on Hulu.

Born in Baton Rouge, LA and raised in St. Charles, IL, Joshua studied music at Northwestern University. Throughout and after college, he delved deeply into the Chicago music scene, performing as a pianist with Marquis Hill, Chris Madsen, Milton Suggs, John Moulder and many others. In his own group co-led with Mike Lebrun, he released Joy Not Jaded and The Local Colorists, as well as his Chamber Music America commissioned work Touch and Go: The Studs Terkel Project
