Completing an undergraduate program in International Relations in 2017, Josiah has since had a wide range of experiences in the media, NGO, digital marketing and political worlds.
In 2014, Josiah worked at North America's largest homeless shelter and developed a variety of skill-based courses designed to re-integrate homeless, low-income, and refugee status Calgarians back into the workplace.
In 2015, Josiah relocated to Paris, France where he undertook a continuation of his degree at the Institut d'Études Politiques de Paris, or SciencesPo Paris.
In the summer of 2016, Josiah undertook an internship with the nonprofit organization "Freedom Tree," operating out of Sierra Leone. Josiah spent two months as a project administrator on the ground in Africa, writing an asset-based and locally sustainable curriculum for villagers combatting infant and maternal mortality. The curriculum is still in use today and has restored healthy birthing practices in numerous villages across the country. Two grants that Josiah wrote for the organization have helped fund a birthing clinic in a remote village severely affected by the Ebola crisis.
Currently, Josiah works as a Digital Lead for Arcade Studios, a digital-forward creative agency specializing in content, social media marketing, and digital advertising located in Calgary, Canada. Josiah runs paid social for a variety of large brands and organizations.
Josiah is also the host of the podcast, "anticulture", exploring (and challenging) cultural perception and identity as a mixed-race individual. The show is a member of the Alberta Podcast Network and is currently in its fourth season.
You can occasionally find Josiah as a panellist on the CBC News Network show, Canada Tonight with Ginella Massa.
Additional projects Josiah has undertaken include various music and writing projects.
