After working as a Rotten Tomatoes-approved, syndicated newspaper critic and an editor for outlets such as, Creative Screen Writing Magazine, and, Josh started his own entertainment news website called CINEMABLEND in 2001.

CINEMABLEND quickly grew, covering film festivals, breaking news, and sending reporters to travel the world. Under Josh’s leadership, CINEMABLEND became one of the top 4000 most visited websites in the world. Thanks to the success of CINEMABLEND, in 2007 Josh was chosen as one of Time Magazine’s most influential and critically clever movie journalists on the internet.

Josh exited CINEMABLEND after a successful acquisition in 2015 and in 2020 formed GIANT FREAKIN ROBOT’s parent company Walk Big.
