Key Accomplishments

I've spread out my experience over the years both in the field and in the audience to create a wide array of skills. Small agency work (Seesaw), large agency work (Big Spaceship), large focused product work (Vimeo), side projects (ChalkySticks), my own business (Polymer Mallard), and more.

At Polymer Mallard, we accept jobs of almost any type ranging from Roku/device specific, database/statistics specific, backend (php, python), frontend, and electronics. We've proven to accomplish some of the most difficult tasks like building a motion-controlled multiplayer game in Times Square for the brand new largest billboard in the United States.

I've been building businesses, exploring ideas, and expanding my capabilities. My company does client work, but I personally like to be involved in ground floor startups. There’s a lot of untapped potential by combining the web, mobile, and real-life devices. Many companies/people are stagnant in one or the other, but I like to combine them into ideas and products that solve problems for people… not brands.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Closely.

Jason McClellan

He works harder than most people I know and produces results. He's pretty far ahead of the game in terms of rationale; while others are stil ... l getting caught up with current standards... he has already surpassed them and is setting new ones.

Chris Dowling

I've had the great pleasure of working with Josh in multiple environments. I have yet to meet someone that can clearly understand, explain, ... and dictate ideas better than he can. He never stutters or stumbles; I attribute this great quality to his ability to fully understand the concepts he speaks about.
