When I first met Josh and learnt about Echoes, I was excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Experiential marketing appeals to all human senses to engage emotions and influence a purchase behavior, hence more effective than any other kind of marketing. And while the whole world is cashing in on video marketing, we tend to forget that audio content historically is one of the most popular forms of multimedia online - remember when radio was king?

Josh has been always positive, creative and never stopped looking for ways to improve Echoes, both as a platform and a company. Being a content creator himself, I couldn’t recommend anyone more qualified to build/run Echoes than Josh.
