Joshua Rothman - VP of Special Projects
Joshua is adept at keeping audiences properly focused, engaged, and listening. He is a consummate communicator, skilled at translating so that others understand concepts and ideas clearly. He was most inspired by his high school physics teacher, Mr. Wetzel. Mr. Wetzel was patient and helped Joshua to truly love a subject matter despite the challenges present in its study. After high school, Joshua moved on to Lehigh University where he studied computer science. Halfway through his education at Lehigh, Joshua decided to refocus his studies on business, with the intention of applying the technology experience he had acquired to the corporate world. After undergrad, Joshua decided to pursue a law degree at Albany Law School, focused on Intellectual Property Law. Joshua ultimately abandoned the study of law in favor of a professional career in marketing, where he felt his creative talents would be put to better use.
At the marketing agencies and in-house marketing departments of the companies Joshua worked at in the following years, he developed a unique writing style, creative flair, and strong opinions on how to best solve the challenges presented to him. He picked up trade show coordination, print and digital collateral design, and interactive training course production skills during this time, and is most proud of the product training courses he created at Delmhorst Instrument Co.. Along the way, Joshua invested his time and resources towards an MBA in Marketing from Montclair State University. In his spare time, Joshua has found time to tutor SAT math, achieve the rank of 4th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do, rock climb, play tennis, run the Tough Mudder five times, act in television and film, start a nonprofit dedicated to spreading awareness of the benefits of exercise in treating anxiety and depression, serve the community through community service, watch movies, read comic books, and travel the world. Recently, Joshua has committed himself to education and training in his professional pursuits, which logically led him to 24/7 Teach. He is thrilled to be on board, and is excited to contribute his varied life experience to students from all walks of life.
