Josh was a summer intern at MediaStorm in 2014. Here is what he had to say about that experience:

MediaStorm hires incredibly talented people, and I learned from all of them when I worked there. Specifically, I benefitted from getting experience with workflow and storytelling techniques from the producers and editors I worked alongside. MediaStorm has strong ties within the journalism community, and that network connected me directly to future jobs at prominent news organizations.

After MediaStorm, Brian Storm recommended I consider doing video at NPR. It turned out to be a very good idea. At NPR, I produced and directed the Emmy Award-winning project, Planet Money Makes A T-Shirt. After NPR, I continued to produce digital and broadcast documentary projects. This included a CNN/MediaStorm broadcast documentary, working as a video journalist on digital projects for The New York Times, and broadcast producer for National Geographic. For the last two years, I worked at VICE News Tonight on HBO, where I produced the viral documentary, Charlottesville: Race and Terror, which won a Peabody and four Emmys. This fall, I'll join the journalism faculty as an Assistant Professor at San Francisco State University.
