Josh Friedman has earned the Greater Irvine Chamber’s title of Rainmaker for the first quarter in 2019 with $250,349 in closed business. His performance in the Wednesday Leads Group contributed to the group’s total of $295,417, making it the top earning Leads Groups for total closed business during the period.

"The Leads Group program is what drew me to join the Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce. It has given me an opportunity to really get to know other business owners on a level beyond small talk at a networking event,” Friedman said. “I have developed true friendships with people that have extended beyond the Leads Groups meetings and one-on-ones. My business and my family have also benefited greatly from services that the members of the groups have provided to us, our friends, and business partners. I am grateful for the opportunity to be in the Leads Group and look forward continuing to share my network with other members and develop deeper personal relationships with them."

A videographer, photographer, musician, and educator, Friedman is the owner of One Zero Digital Media, LLC, and One Zero Studio, which provides professional video production and photography services for web and event marketing. In addition to producing traditional custom ground and 2D animation videos, One Zero Digital Media has been active nationally in the drone industry since 2013 pioneering the use of multirotor drones to create professional video, photography, and digital 3D models. Friedman has coordinated three National Drone Educators conferences and has taught drone education and video production classes at Cal Poly Pomona, Coastline College, Cypress College, and Goldenwest College.
