Joshua's bio

Hi, I’m a gadget-obsessed-nerd and Foo Fighters fan living on the Gold Coast with Britt, my awesome wife of two years, and we have the great honour of travelling this vast planet celebrating that marvellous union called marriage. We’re just two kids in love interested in other kids in love. That’s my story, what’s your?

Testimonials

Hear what some of my clients and colleagues have to say about me after working together on various projects throughout my career.

Will Smith

Sales Representative at Emtek Furniture

“Josh has a great fresh flavour that he brings to any situation. Be it radio, wedding or any group Josh is your man.”

Lui Zachër

Broadcast Media Professional

“Joshua was a fantastic mentor and motivator during the time we both worked in breakfast radio. He was the ideal person to brainstorm and workshop ideas, and give feedback.”

Gina Baker

Producer Mornings at 4BC Brisbane

“Joshua is a fine details man with an eye for a story and technical expertise in all things back end of a website. He has speed, technology and ability and know how as his assets”

Chris Logan

Broadcast Media Professional

“Joshua is committed to his work, and, as this particular job demanded, was willing to work any hour of the day or night without complaint. He sought to improve his craft and learn new skills. He was content working by himself or as a contributor to a team. He brought humour and joy to the workplace while remaining serious about his work.”

Paul Zarb

Manager at Microworx Pty Ltd

“I found Joshua to be friendly, skillful & courteous, & he is a pleasure to do business with.”

Chris Baskerville

Breakfast Announcer at Southern Cross Austereo

“Josh is one of the most dedicated people I've had the chance to work with. He's a very knowledgeable man who's work always boasts the highest attention to detail. Very clever, creative and pack with personality.”

Jordan Peters

Breakfast Announcer at STAR FM SHEPPARTON

“As soon as you hear Josh, one thing is very clear; this guy loves what he’s doing! I had to describe him in a few words; he'd be "The Teddy Bear next door"

He has great ideas and has a great way of making the impossible happen. From his petition to have his local beach named the whitest in the world or having Russel Crow on the show to celebrate International Man Day.

His technical skills are too be envied too, he is an excellent web designer and technician.

His efforts are 100% tunned to making his show better.”

Sarah Maree Cameron

Presenter with Nova Entertainment

“When you get down to it, you want to work with / along side / for Josh. I knew of him before we even met - for all positive reasons. When I met Josh, I understood very quickly why so many people enjoyed sharing their work space and ideas with him.

Josh is incredibly enthusiastic about the projects he works on, with clear goals in mind and the determination to achieve them. In media, Josh is a the perfect all-rounder. He can generate and delivery content across multiple platforms. He can produce, present and do all the online stuff so many others can't, all whilst leaving a stamp on his work that you can't forget.

As for being a marriage celebrant, I can't say I have worked with Josh first hand in this field but what I can tell you as a soon-to-be-bride is that he stands out from the crowd. His social media interaction is outstanding. He doesn't publish stuff about himself to be consumed by just anyone. Josh takes the time to create content that appeals to would-be bride and grooms. He creates talking points for them, offers advice and keeps tabs on the growing trends in the industry so you don't have to spend hours on Google, Pinterest etc.

Whether you're looking at Josh for a media job, or perhaps to be the celebrant at your wedding - I cannot recommend him enough. I enjoyed my time working with Josh and I am sure you will, too.”

Jamie Garantziotis

Senior Account Executive at Edelman

“Josh exemplifies the new media professional. With an infectious enthusiasm for new and traditional media, he is always keen to explore emerging trends and developments in both the profession and technologies, and never fails to share his learnings with friends and colleagues to foster a culture of collaboration. Josh lives and breathes his passions in life, and for that I both admire and respect him greatly. He is always willing to lend a hand and support those around him, and possesses a tireless work ethic that he is never afraid to use. It has been an absolute pleasure working with him during his time at Southern Cross Austereo, and I am delighted to recommend him.”

Jarrod Graetz

CEO at 89.9 LightFM

“Josh is a passionate and competent radio professional. He has a heart and dedication for everything he does and is an all round top guy.”
