About Josh

Hi, I'm Josh Cavalier, and my passion is to help you create enduring educational videos and instructional strategies. 

You have knowledge to share and stories to tell. Let's work together to make your instructional videos resonate with your audience. I have a series of strategies that will make your training videos memorable and accelerate your production workflow.    

We live in a prolific age of content creation and distribution. Your evergreen instructional videos will live to be viewed by future generations. I'll help you establish video production values that will stand the test of time. 


I started my career over 28 years ago as an art director for an eLearning company. Back then, I was responsible for creating video and graphic content. Can you imagine - 240 x 360 video on a 640 x 480 screen? Yeah, I lived it. 

The company I founded in 1999, Lodestone Digital, went from $0 revenue in 1999 to $1.8 MIL in 2006 with five offices, including one in New York City, 11 employees, and 20 contractors. Lodestone went on to train thousands of students worldwide on digital media tools. It was a fantastic run! 

At Lodestone Digital, I worked with mega-talents like James Williamson and William Everhart, who would create record-breaking instructional videos for Lynda.com and Pluralsight. 

I have performed video workshops for Fortune 500 companies and US military branches. From the floor of the NY Stock Exchange to the assembly line of the F-35 Lightning to numerous corporate headquarters, including Microsoft, Lockheed-Martin, Marriott, Lowes, and Phizer, to name a few.

It's time to take all the lessons and proven strategies I've learned and share them on my YouTube channel, Instagram, and online classes. 

My goals include posting weekly on my new YouTube channel, creating downloadable checklists, broadcasting live webinars, and hosting one-of-kind in-person training events - like my Camtasia Master Class for Educators

Now for some other details:  

  • I'm happily married to Wendy. We just celebrated our 23rd. ❤
  • We have one son, James, who is our everything. 
  • Initially, in my career, I was an illustrator. I graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA in Medical Illustration. I would draw illustrations during live surgeries - which was crazy, and my work has been featured in medical journals. 
  • I've been called a "Computer Ace" by People Magazine.
  • I'm a massive supporter of suicide prevention causes. My sister, Carri, is an award-winning philanthropic leader in New York State. She is lighting up the world with her story. I love you, sis! 
  • I'm a total jock. I played football (QB), basketball, and baseball in high school. I played two years of college baseball before partially tearing my rotator cuff.  
  • I was raised in a farming community about 25 miles outside Cleveland, Ohio. I'm a Browns, Indians, Cavaliers, and Buckeye fan. O-H!
  • Put on your boxing gloves! I love to kickbox and lift at least five days a week. 
  • My first concert was Loverboy, and I'm into all kinds of music, but I always seem to default back to 80's metal and rock. Dance and electronic during late-night work, and I will surprise you with the pre-set country radio station in my car. You can't take the country out of this boy. 

Wow... that's a lot about me. Now, I want to hear from you.

I'll see you down the road!
