Joshua Linenfelser — Deputy Creative Director
Florida International University C’19
Joshua is a senior at Florida International University studying Marine biology. He works in the tropical fish ecology lab where he conducts research both in the lab and in the field. Furthermore, he engages in numerous research and restoration projects through the FIU Center for Coastal Ocean Research program to better understand and restore surrounding ecosystems. Joshua was born and raised in Miami, FL where he experienced the beauty and magnificence of two national parks and a marine sanctuary known as Biscayne National Park, Everglades National Park, and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. The amazing spectacle shown by nature in these areas has motivated him to uptake a passion for photography. Photography is a way to capture a moment that may never be seen again; allowing for different people to admire that moment and pass it on for future generations to see. He hopes to be able to spread beauty and knowledge through his imagery to bring awareness towards the importance of nature and the preservation thereof to people around the world.
