Based in London, Joel Golby is a journalist and author who has written extensively for VICE, The Guardian, and the BBC. His first book, “BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT: Modern Life as Interpreted By Someone Who Is Reasonably Bad at Living It” is a collection of essays published in 2019. His observations and naked self-reflection made him a perfect contributor for our series Work Sucks, I know in which he explains how he built a career without a shred of work ethic or innate organizational skills.

“My brain wants to run wild through a field and somehow make a paycheck for it afterwards, but that is not the reality we live in.”
