Born in Houston, TX, Joshua Christian's southern roots have inspired them to explore the culture, global, and literary language, allowing them to delve into the facets of storytelling. They further developed these skills when they were accepted into the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA), where they found their artistic eye in design---which was awarded at the Texas U.I.L State Design Competition---and acting, culminating in their becoming a Theatre Finalist at the 2018 National YoungArts Competition.
His passion for an interdisciplinary exploration of story prompted their pursuit of formal training and acceptance into the prestigious John Wells Directing Program at Carnegie Mellon University. During their time at the institution, they strengthened their theatrical prowess by producing festivals, broadcast directing fashion shows [Lunar Gala], creating short films, directing award-winning theatrical staged readings with KCACTF National Festival, August Wilson House x City of Asylum, and Eugene O’Neill National Playwrighting Conference----while also being named an inaugural Cody Renard Richard Scholar in partnership with the Broadway Advocacy Coalition, and a commissioned finalist for the 2022 New South Young Horizon's Playwrights Festival.
After graduating from Carnegie Mellon University, Joshua Christian has had the opportunity to dive into the business realm of entertainment at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in Los Angeles, California. Long-term, they are on track toward a career in creative development, management, and distribution of screen content.
