At the ripe old age of eight months, Josh Potter embarked on his first cross-continent plane journey. Since then he hasn’t really looked back, airport terminals and train stations becoming second homes.
In India he spent the first years of his life chasing lizards in the most populated city on earth, Mumbia. Back in England for the celebration of his ninth birthday, and then on to Colorado, USA before turning twelve. Halfway through high school it was time to move again, this time to the sunny hills of Los Angeles. It was here that he graduated from high school with the successful completion of an IB diploma.
Next stop, Uganda, where he worked with two organisations helping in the local communities wherever he could, teaching and being taught: everything from teaching English to learning how to work the farms and fish the lakes.
After Uganda he went back to his family in California where he worked for a year before flying over to London to attend university, graduating with First Class Honours. During university he wrote his first book; travelled to Paris to cover the COP21 conference; dove into the intricacies of the street art and graffiti art scene tucked behind the back streets of London; documented the growing fan base of adult Lego enthusiasts (known as AFOLs); and watched every Disney Princess movie to create your definitive(ish) guide to sexism in Disney Princess movies.
Upon graduating he undertook a road trip from Boston to Los Angeles in the summer of 2016 (the photo above is from that journey), before taking the train down to San Diego where he spent his time relaxing in the sun, writing, completing Uncharted 4, and performing his best man duties for his brother’s wedding.
Now he sits in his room (or at the local coffee shop) somewhere in the English countryside, typing away at his computer and occasionally popping out for a breath of fresh air.
