Joshua has been a writer/performer in the Twin Cities for almost 20 years. 

Fresh out of school with a theater degree in one hand and an Emmy Award in the other, Joshua got his professional start at Dudley Riggs' Brave New Workshop and Instant Theater Company - the oldest, continuing comedy theater in the United States.

Three years and Nine shows later,  Joshua left the workshop to start up his own satirical theater company, The Recovery Party.  His first endeavor?  The Edinburgh Fringe Theatre Festival where the troupe became the first first-time foreign entrant to sell-out consecutive performances in over a decade.

Joshua still writes and performs with The Recovery Party and other theater companies around the Twin Cities.  He has also appeared in (and co-written) a handful of independent films as well commercial and print work.

He also writes.
