I also write and produce a newscast focused on women. And I do occasional freelance stories for the news department, usually on cultural or arts topics. I have done freelance for LatinoUSA and NPR. I moved into public television production and hosting in 2012. I am now a half-time producer and host at New Mexico PBS and I freelance in radio and writing I am also the former president of the Journalism and Women Symposium, a national organization, and I\'m on the board of the New Mexico chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Notes : I have been in New Mexico for more seven years and have found fascinating stories here, on the business beat, in tribal business, in science, and in arts and culture, that I think would make great regional and national stories as well. I am interested in trying to get those out to a wider audience. My TEDxAlbuquerque talk on women in media went national in June 2012. You can see it here. http://tinyurl.com/7bfhkw8

Bio : Josh started out as an embryo, 53 times smaller than a US nickel. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, his attempts at an early age to fuse the abstract concepts of comedy and science through home video led to many nights filming in the basement. Eventually this passion led him to create short offbeat science segments for ABC Nightline, Good Morning America, and Fox. With a unique visual style and irreverent sense of humor he tackled boring sounding topics like Social Security and Cellular Differentiation and made them fun to watch. Highlights include dressing up as a sheep and using large balls of Jell-O to explain cloning. Currently he lives in Los Angeles and specializes in fast-paced short form content. As well as creating science segments for NPR and PBS.
Other fun facts include: Once while animating a pair of baseballs, he severed a tendon in his thumb and he hates cilantro (not a preference - it’s biological).
