After graduating with a Bachelor in Outdoor Education and Adventure Recreation, Josh set off to follow summer and film his kayaking adventures. On his return he decided to start Southern Underground Productions and use it to produce films to share his adventures and raise money for more missions and for various charities.  In the past 5 years SUP has donated over $10,000 to Soft Power Health and Whitewater NZ.  Josh has now produced 5 films along with numerous short films.  His latest creation, Realm, was awarded a special jury award at NZ Mountain Film Festival and has been on show all around the world.
