Joshua believes in and teaches the benefits and possibilities that theater creates for students with learning differences. Joshua has witnessed many remarkable transformations in students while in theater classes at Landmark College. He is excited to bring a more robust array of theater courses to LC that will give students an increased opportunity to learn and then participate in the remarkable life-lessons that theater offers.

In Los Angeles his directing work has been seen at the REDCAT, Echo Theater Company, Theater of N.O.T.E., 24th Street Theater, Bootleg Theater, Sacred Fools Theater, Boston Court Theater, and the Edge of The World Fest.
