Josh is currently a Senior Creative Director at Facebook on the Building 8 team which is focused on building new hardware products to advance Facebook’s efforts in virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and mission to connect the world. For the last four years, he was on The Factory team where he was fortunate to work on a variety of projects from company and product identities, the Facebook brand book ensuring consistency for those identities, brand campaigns and the personalized video program. Additionally, Josh has overseen Product Marketing creative for all verticals of Facebook. Over the four years, he grew the team and processes to a high-functioning studio producing a variety of work including launch films, websites, campaigns, collateral, and online / offline creative for Facebook's annual F8 conference.

In 2013 Josh concluded his role as Design Director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign. As the Design Director, Josh built and led the creative team for the historic 2012 political campaign in which the web, design, and technology played a pivotal role. The responsibility of Josh and the team was to design the Obama 2012 campaign both online and offline. A main focus was to create a uniform message and consistent visual language across all mediums.

Josh dedicates a percentage of his time to social causes. Finding creative ways to support these causes has manifested into exhibits and charitable projects, like The Hurricane, So-Cal and Haiti Poster Projects in addition to lecture series with photographers, designers and film makers with proceeds donated to various charitable organizations and causes. With roots in both advertising and graphic design, Josh’s work has earned him national honors.
