In addition to his political work, Josh has worked with some of the nation’s leading corporations and most cutting-edge start-ups. He has managed large outreach programs for the Department of Defense and written for some of the biggest names in entertainment, advocacy, politics and the law.

After leaving the campaign trail, Josh served as regional political director for one of the nation’s most well-known grassroots advocacy organizations, training activists to make a convincing case for policy changes at the state and federal levels.

Through his breadth of experience, Josh has developed a unique understanding of the communications tactics that grow a cause into a movement. His grasp of the interplay between politics, policy and communications, and experience in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors sets him apart from others in the field.
