Joshua has worked with People’s Light and Theatre Company, the Wilma Theatre, Delaware Theatre Company, the Media Theatre Company, Azuka Theatre, Theatre West Virginia, Rebecca Davis Dance Company, and many more. In 2008, Joshua was the recipient of the Barrymore Award for his lighting design of ART at Delaware Theatre Company.
