Josh Dassa

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Josh has lived and worked all over the globe. Once a forklift operator in Australia, a surf guide in El Salvador, and a chef in California, he eventually left the surf, sand, and sun to pursue his passion for writing, earning a Bachelors of Arts degree in English Literature at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. An incessant story-teller, Josh discovered his passion for marketing while working with a culinary-minded publication, and writing copy for small businesses. He’s excited to explore his passion for writing and storytelling in a marketing capacity with GTMA.

Outside of work he’s obsessed with surfing and reading short-fiction. On weekends, you can find him wetsuit-clad floating in the Pacific, or browsing library stacks. He also spends his free-time writing essays and short-stories for various digital and print publications.
