An optimistic believer in digital’s transformative power on the landscape of B2B2C marketing, Josh brings over a decade of agency experience to his role as CEO and President of Blue Flame Thinking. He also brings a lifetime spent in the act of artistic creation and expression…and some serious programming skills.

Josh’s journey from artist to programmer of enterprise-grade software applications to digital marketing team leader to business owner began with the realization that the act of creating is more important than the medium used.

“It’s not that I am less of a ‘maker’ now. I’m just making something that serves other makers: an agency that provides clients and staff members with a better way to express themselves.”
