Josh is the first ever Greens Councillor to serve the City of Monash.

Outside of his duties as a Councillor, Josh is the Chief Executive Officer of the charity Kevin Heinze GROW and a sessional academic at the University of Melbourne.  Josh has extensive experience in a broad range of areas including child, youth, and family welfare, public health, mental health, disability, international development, education, and community broadcasting.

Born and raised in Monash, Josh has also lived in London while working on development of the National Health Service with local groups including the Haredi and Afro-Carribean communities, and in Nepal while working with local women and children.

Josh comes from a fostering family and is a former President of the Foster Care Association of Victoria. He is passionate about creating and maintaining a safe and nurturing environment for all children and young people, education, social justice, and human rights.

A PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne, Josh holds a Master's Degree in Social Work, and Bachelor's Degrees in Arts and Teaching.

Josh would like to acknowledge the traditional owners in Monash, and pay his respects to their elders past, present, and emerging.
