Hello.

A little bit about me: I build products. I grow companies. I live in the intersection of design, technology, and strategy. I’m proud to have overseen so many products that people love and use every day. I’m also a geek when it comes to data and analytics, so if you share my passions , reach out to me.

Shmee looks dapper

Could Shmee possibly be any more dapper?

I’m currently the co-Founder and CEO of Pickaxe Foundry. Pickaxe is a new company focused on creating a next generation platform that automates data science. Pickaxe makes understanding what’s happening your business easier than ever before with AI-powered business intelligence, and we also provide consulting services to help companies build, launch, and optimize amazing products.

Prior to founding Pickaxe Foundry, Joshua was co-founder of Dynamite Labs, a venture backed startup focused on innovation in video storytelling. Dynamite was one of the first mobile storytelling platforms that allowed users to record videos with realtime motion tracked face-masks.

And before Dynamite, I was the Chief Product and Marketing Officer for Bedrocket Media Ventures, a venture-backed disruptive media company focused on changing the way people discover and consume great entertainment in the cloud. I also ran the team responsible for the award-winning design of HBO GO (among other really cool clients) at HUGE.  And I spent some time building a large, social and data driven software platform as SVP & GM of Social Media for MTV Networks, worked as VP Digital Media for Fuse Networks, and pioneered many internet firsts as VP Creative Development & Digital Media for Atlantic Records.

I’m also the proud father of Shmee, the cutest little Klee Kai born in Brooklyn. Shmee likes to share his own thoughts from time to time, so follow him!

Language is a skin: I rub my language against the other. It is as if I had words instead of fingers, or fingers at the tip of my words. My language trembles with desire.
