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 the Deputy Chair of the Standing Committee on the Environment and Energy. He is a member of 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.
