Hey, I’m Josh Sun.

I was raised in Long Beach, CA. and decided that there was too much sunshine, and the ocean views were getting old. The most logical decision after coming to this state of mind was to move to a place with snowy winters, epic thunderstorms and completely land locked, Kansas City, MO.

Here are some facts that one simply can not ignore -

1. While I was living in LA, the Lakers won 5 championships. When I moved out, they have yet to even make it to the playoffs.

2. When I joined VML in 2016, they were ranked #9 on Ad Age’s Agency A List. The next year they moved to #5, then the year after that, #3. Sure, currently they moved to “Agencies to Watch,” but that has more to do with the Y&R merger than anything right?

3. Shortly after my arrival, my current KC neighborhood, River Market has added a craft brewery, two new trendy restaurants, and one new all in one bar, coffeeshop and bookstore.

I know, I can’t believe the impact I’ve made either.
