Here he gained experience at organising major events, teaching primary school students how to play Football and complete work experience with the Collingwood Football Club.

After successfully completing his Diploma at the end of 2012 with High Distinctions, Josh was accepted into the Bachelor of Sports Journalism course at La Trobe University where he graduated at the end of 2015. The comprehensive course covered subjects through television broadcasting and radio broadcasting, to press releases, publishing and live blogging.

During his time at university, Josh got his first job as a journalist with the Australian motorsport website RF1, filing practice reports, feature articles and in 2014 onwards solely covering the GP2 series. Josh made his first appearance as an internationally FIA-accredited journalist at the 2014 Singapore Grand Prix.
