Josh has worked as an Associate Lecturer at Curtin University, a paralegal and litigation project manager, and a freelance photojournalist and travel writer. His international engagements include working as an independent election observer on the recount and audit of Afghanistan’s presidential election in August 2014; attending the Asian Electoral Stakeholder Forum II in Dili, East Timor, in March 2015; and supporting the installation of the first Australian sculpture in the Nagasaki Peace Park in April 2016 as part of the Mayors for Peace initiative.
As a representative of the Fremantle electorate, Josh is focused on protecting and enhancing the things we share, such as universal healthcare, high-quality education, public amenity and infrastructure (like the NBN, Freo Port, and public transport), and our environment, both land and sea. He believes that inclusive prosperity will require a focus on reducing inequality and creating jobs at a time when unregulated economic transition puts social and economic inclusion at great risk.
He is Shadow Assistant Minister for the Environment, with particular responsibility for waste, oceans, and heritage. He is the Deputy Chair of the Standing Committee on the Environment and Energy, and is a member of both the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties and the Select Committee on Regional Australia.
Josh and his wife, Georgia, live in Fremantle with their three children.
