Josh is originally from Berkeley, California and earned his BFA in Lighting Design from California Institute of the Arts. He produced electronic music for six years before starting in lighting design. Josh applies his music background in representing songs and emotion through light. His passion for music and lighting combined with his diligent and organized workflow can be seen in the final product of his productions.



Lighting design is not only an art, but also a science. For every production, Josh thinks about both the aesthetic and the practical elements going into the final product. With experience in lighting, video, and music performance, he is able to design with the understanding of how every piece of a live production must work together in one synchronized harmony.

When it comes to programming, Josh uses the GrandMA2 lighting desk because of its immense customization. He has created a programming template where he can program light cues right alongside the music’s sound waves for precisely timed and detailed cues. Additionally, he has developed a method of programming that uses performer-driven triggers such as MIDI and Timecode to provide the most synchronized and interactive light shows.
