Joshua Burnell


Joshua Burnell – Director of Digital Strategy. In the mid 90s, Joshua was working in the music industry and while in a recording studio he was introduced to the Internet. “It was love at first site,” he says. “I knew I wanted in on this and everything it is going to be.” He immediately went out and purchased books on HTML, graphic design, and anything else he could find. Always interested in technology, as a kid he would take apart any electronic devices he could get his hands on, try and understand the workings of it, and then put it back together.

Not surprising, Joshua majored in Electronics Technology, and after 11 years in the music industry he moved to a career in web development. He is responsible for having put the first Chicago Zoning Ordinance books online, and he has worked as a consultant for a number of membership organizations including The Academy of Sports Medicine and the YMCA. Joshua also served in the pharmaceutical communications industry for seven years.

He joined GKIC in 2012 and is responsible for managing the web development, graphic design, and video production team.
