Josh Dare, Philadelphia-based writer, content marketer, and marketing communicator.
Josh had a love of the craft from an early age, although it lay dormant until he found opportunity during a working holiday in the U.K., joyfully writing updates to friends and family back home with wit and humor.
He soon chanced across an ideal job as the editorial assistant for a busy London publishing house. Following this post, continued writing, contributing widely on a freelance basis.
On return to Melbourne, Josh approached streetpress community newspaper MCV (Melbourne Community Voice); becoming the ultimate slashy: designer / scene editor / staff writer / web editor / photographer.
Wanting to advance professionally, he decided to pursue a Master of Communication degree from RMIT Melbourne. He graduated in 2014 with a new-found penchant for marketing communications and a particular flair for content marketing.
Following study, Josh took the opportunity to work and travel in the United States. He headed to Philadelphia, where he met and married a local. Greencard in hand, he now lives in Philadelphia permanently.
