Joshua is a performing artist based out of New York and Massachusetts.
He was born and raised in Hubbardston, Massachusetts. The theater bug came to bite Joshua at the extremely early age of six months old, when his two older sisters decided to tape construction paper horns on his head for their home production of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Eventually he got to move up from the living room to perform in the local community theater. At the age of five he was cast in his first production, it was The Little Mermaid and he was a piece of seaweed! From that moment on he was hooked, and what started off as a mere interest became an unwavering passion.
Once he got that first taste of the stage, Josh knew it was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life; and that has never changed. As he grew up he did countless shows with the local community theaters: Hubbardston Community Theater, Barre Player’s Theater, and the Gilbert Players. Here he was actively learning the skills he would need to become a better actor and was given the tools and encouragement to pursue his dreams. Josh continued to work extensively with these companies, along with his high school drama department, until he left the area to attend his next step of a higher education.
Joshua went on to attend Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) where he obtained a BA in Fine and Performing Arts, with a concentration in theater. Joshua was cast in the Main Stage show his first semester, and continued to be an intensely active member of his university's theater department. While attending college Joshua worked on a wide range of shows form Shakespeare (As You Like It, Twelfth Night,) to Musicals (Cabaret, Urinetown, Avenue Q, Spring Awakening), to obscure classics/ contemporary plays (Scenes from and Execution, Agamemnon, Angels in America.) In addition to performing, Joshua was also the choreographer for the department’s musicals (Cabaret, Little Shop of Horrors, Into the Woods, and Spring Awakening.) He was a Teaching Assistant for the Advanced Acting Shakespeare Course, and was the Co- President of the schools Musical Theatre Club, producing a musical revue and full scale show every year.
While attending college Joshua spent two summers working with the Prescott Park Art Festival, in Portsmouth NH. He performed in their acclaimed productions of Annie and Shrek: The Musical.
Upon graduation, in May 2014, Joshua moved to New York City, where he has been thriving in the hustle and bustle of the city, while pursuing his dream.
