He has studied acting under the tutelage of Cynthia Saint James, Delores Aguano, Elina DeSantos and Akuyoe Graham and has been impacting the creative arts scene for some time now. He has enriched this community through many media such as visual art, dance, theater, poetry, and especially beatboxing. While being a vessel for Jazz, Funk, Blues and Soul, through time Joshua has graciously earned the title as the "hardest working beatboxer in LA." Joshua has performed in many venues including, the House of Blues, the Ford Amphitheater, the 2003 Panifest which took place in Ghana, West Africa and Norman Lear's "Declare Yourself", a nonpartisan tour rallying the American people to register and vote. Most recently Joshua made history as one of the first American Hip Hop artists to perform in Kuwait along with Gina Loring and Brandon Coleman. You can also catch Joshua nationally as Co-host/ Beatboxer on Si TV's Not So Foreign Filmmakers Showcase a show dedicated to independent film.

While performing just about every night, Joshua graciously donates his time as a youth advocate and mentor for The Center for The Advancement of Nonviolence, the Agape Spiritual Center and Peace4Kids and facilitates many beatbox and poetry workshops for elementary and high school students.
