Joseph Gordon Cleveland descended on Boston in 2008 after a serendipitous move from his hometown of Santa Barbara, California. Having spent most of his life sharing his opinion with anyone listening (and many who weren’t), Cleveland parlayed his creative sensibilities into a career in fashion. He serves as both Producer and Host for Fashion Forward, and his work earned him an Emmy nomination in 2011. He is also the Creative Director of COUP Boston–a lifestyle magazine covering fashion, home design, food, travel, and beauty–and a classically-trained violinist. His freelance writing and editorial work has been published in Boston magazine, the Boston Globe, the Improper Bostonian, Spirited magazine, and EDGE magazine, among others.
