The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Originally from Rome, NY, Josh developed his interest in location-based experiences at a young age, mainly through family vacations to theme parks around the country. He became fascinated with themed environments and what goes into creating the 'total guest experience' and knew this was the field for him.
While studying Theatrical Design at SUNY Fredonia, he supplemented his studies with work at many regional theatres across the country, including the Tony Award- Winning Utah Shakespearean Festival and the Texas Repertory Theatre in roles as varied as Properties Master, Scenic Artist, Multimedia Designer, Technical Director and Scenic Designer. He also served as a Creative Intern during a semester-long design internship at Walt Disney World.
Josh's other interest is American Modern Dance. He's been at it for 7 years and is an avid performer and choreographer. He has studied under Carolyn Adams of The Julliard School and has performed as a guest artist with VIA Dance Collaborative in 2005 at The Alvin Ailey Studios in New York.
At the ETC, Josh hopes to further explore his interests while learning and working with his incredibly diverse and talented classmates!!
