Hello, I’m Josh.

⇲ I’m a writer, ghostwriter, and editorial director interested in culture, technology, finance, psychiatry, media, decentralisation, the future of work, and lots more besides.

I’m published in titles such as The Guardian, The BBC, The Baffler, Frieze, and Dazed, and through my agency Studio Pelikan I work with commercial clients including Monzo, Gucci, Nokia, Red Bull, and Universal Music. I’ve lived and worked in the UK and Germany, and am now based in London. ⇙

⇉ As a trade reporter I spent several years covering media, tech, entrepreneurship, and investment beats. As a ghostwriter I’ve written extensively on workers’ rights, automation, blockchain technology, AI, data justice, and small business policy. This work has appeared in almost every UK national newspaper, Parliamentary reports, dozens of trade and specialist publications, and corporate editorial campaigns.

Through my agency Studio Pelikan I create editorial and audio projects for household name brands in consumer tech, culture, luxury fashion, and travel. In recent years I’ve worked closely with several startups operating at the intersection of blockchain technology, culture, and creators’ rights, providing editorial direction, product development, and strategic consultancy. I’ve also worked on a range of film projects, including as a story consultant and music supervisor on music and culture documentaries for clients including Gucci and Frieze, and as an executive producer on several music videos. I’ve previously held senior in-house positions on both client and agency side, including as an Editorial Director at VICE’s creative services agency Virtue.

I’ve appeared on panels at festivals and conferences across Europe, and in 2017 my essay A Brief Period Of Turbulence was longlisted for the Notting Hill Editions Prize. ␥
