hi, there!

I’m Josh Walker, the founder and president of Recon Media. I’ve been helping others tell their stories, through websites, video, and marketing materials for over 15 years.

I served as a Cavalry Scout in the 101st Airborne and deployed to Baghdad in 2005. During my time in the military, I always had a camera (and usually two) on me. I started to document my experiences for others to better understand war and the impact it has on humans.

This combination of experience, creativity, technology, and storytelling has been deeply embedded in me for decaades. I’ve carried these passions with me and apply them to everything I do, in both business and life in general.

I started Recon Media after a decade of working with non-profit organizations and small businesses. I saw a trend in these two distinct groups and knew the need had to be filled. There were too many opportunities these organizations were missing out on year after year.

Many small and medium size organizations don’t have access to quality research or marketing services. Really, they don’t know where to start when it comes to strategic planning, branding, or marketing and wind up wasting precious resources and marketing budgets on fast-talking salesmen and crappy ad programs.

That’s where Recon Media comes in. We fill the void and offer market and competitor research, brand development, marketing and advertising, and strategy development.

Helping you grow is our passion


We watch out for your business interestes like Baxter watches out for squirrels.


We’re in business to help others. We focus on serving other veteran-owned businesses, non-profit organizations, and small businesses. We believe in giving back to our community and love working with others to affect positive change and disrupt norms.

We’ve never been the type to sit idly by and let things fall apart. We’re the first to jump in and get our hand dirty. Deadlines don’t scare us and we love a good challenge.


Recon Media intentionally works with non-profits and small businesses. Our founder Josh Walker saw a trend in these two distinct groups and knew the need had to be filled.

Most small businesses and non-profits have an in-house marketing team. Recon Media fills that need by partnering with organizations to bring their goals to life through storytelling using video, social media, and branding.

What we love

We love working to solve business and marketing problems for organizations. We’re a team of passionate, analytical, and creative people (and a dog) that truly believe in using our skills and resources to help make others better.

Just drop by sometime or meet one of us for coffee or a beer and you’ll see what we mean. Even Baxter loves making people happy!



Chief Happiness Officer

As the CHO, Baxter is in charge of the level of cuteness and fun in the office. He’s an AKC Golden Retriever, though at times acts more like a retired 72 year-old man. He takes up half the bed, doesn’t want to get up in the morning, and takes naps throughout the day.

He’s quick to make friends and has a severe case of FOMO. He loves the snow, running through creeks, and jumping off of boats. Obviously, the quickest way to his heart is a quick game of fetch. He also loves empty water bottles.



President & Founder

Josh is a 101st Airborne Cav Scout combat veteran. He’s passionate about nonprofits, community development, and entrepreneurship. Josh consumes too much coffee and not enough vegetables (don’t tell mom!). He loves data and creativity and combining the two.

Jossh has a love-hate relationship with structured systems and is always on the lookout for ways to improve how things are done. 



Account Manager

Mick has been called a perfectionist more times than he’d like to admit, but he won’t apologize for it — sorry. He has an incredible attention to detail in everything he does and loves problem-solving.

Mick has seen success as an account manager, website manager, sales executive, and content creator. When he’s not working, his passions include his family, Chicago sports, craft beer, playing bass guitar, and cinema.
