Joshua-Christian Wyatt (he/they) is a multi-hyphenate creative artist who opens conversations surrounding the connections between philosophy, psychology, and genre. Born in Houston, TX, their Southern roots give way to an exploration of culture and literary language that allows them to delve into the facets of storytelling. They further built these tools when they were accepted into the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA), where they found their artistic eye in design and acting, culminating into them becoming a Theatre Finalist at the 2018 National Youngarts Competition. This passion for an interdisciplinary exploration of story prompted their pursuit for a formal training and their acceptance into the prestigious John Wells Directing Program at Carnegie Mellon University. In their time at the institution they strengthened their theatrical prowess by producing festivals, broadcast directing fashion shows, creating short films, as well as developing plays and screenplays for distribution. They’ve found new avenues of expression through movements such as Afro-Futurism, Afro-Surrealism, and Absurdism. At present, they are currently on track toward a career in creative development and television production.
