Hello, thanks for visiting. My name is Joshua Roberts, but most people call me Josh. I'm originally from Seattle, but I've been living and working in Taiwan since 2003.
I live a fairly balanced life of work and play — I do both to the fullest of my ability. I love to travel and spend time outdoors. I'm a social creature, I like to drink and stay up late, but I also love to detox and hit the sac early (and I'm told I should do this more often).
My work life has always been rooted in design and marketing. I would put myself in a work to live category, although I do genuinely love what I am working on these days.
I work at Level Interactive, an award-winning brand strategy and design consultancy I founded in 2018. I started this agency because I was tired of working with agencies that didn't pay attention to details, and didn't have passion and heart for projects like it was their own. At Level, we provide strategy, design, and marketing services to both local and international companies.
I also spend much of my time growing a made in Taiwan skincare brand my wife and I founded in 2019 called gabi+skin. We make natural skincare products featuring real essential oils and green coffee seed extract. Building this brand has allowed us to apply our knowhow from our consultancy to our own brand.
When I'm not working, you might find me backpacking, playing games, drinking craft beers, working on my unicycle skills, or honing my sleight of hand card tricks.
I am always interested in meeting new people. If you are in or around Taipei, shoot me a message, it'd be great to connect. And even if you aren't, it would still be great to meet virtually!
