We are a fun team made up of an array of exciting personalities. Find out more about the faces behind the team in our Behind The Bubble Q&A.

Josh Paterson – Senior Account Manager

What was your first job?
Live music has always been a huge part of my life. During college, along with a weekend job at a chemist, I also helped my friends band by organising merchandise. They’d design, I’d order and then we’d head out in the evenings to set up shop and sell t-shirts and CD’s at their gigs. During the summer between college and starting university, we also went on a UK tour which was great fun!

After graduating, my first ‘proper job’ was working at the London Media Centre for the London 2012 Olympics, which was a really rewarding and enjoyable couple of months!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Growing up, I always wanted to work in some realm of media; be it television, radio, or live events. At Bubble, I have the opportunity to work with lots of clients who have huge involvement in all of these sectors so it really is the ideal job for me!

Soundtrack of your life (choose one song)
I have soooo many, but I’d say one of my all time favourites is Good Times by CHIC & Nile Rogers!

Biggest pet peeve
An odd one… but price labels left on the bottom of new shoes and seeing people walk around with them still on!

What is one thing you’re learning and why is it important?
Every day of your life is a learning experience. If you can go to bed at night knowing you’ve learnt at least one thing that day to act upon or be mindful of, then I feel like you’re making some of the right tracks to happiness and success

Favourite phrase; English and another language
I’m the biggest Disney fan, so it would have to be Hakuna Matata – “it means no worries, for the rest of your days!”

What is your guilty pleasure?
I LOVE Eurovision! My birthday always falls on the same weekend so its been a constant love in my life! I love the cheesy Europop tunes and the campness of it all. Very sad that it’s been cancelled for 2020, but would love to experience it for real one day!

What is your most used emoji?
Red heart <3

Do you have a hidden talent?
I am known for my talent of being able to get tickets to concerts that are either sold out, or that you cannot buy tickets for! It’s a secret though, sorry 😉

Do you have an industry idol, if so who? And why?
Ash and Fernando, the co-founders of disguise are definitely industry inspirations. It’s great to see the wonderful successes that they and the global disguise team are achieving since the days of starting out as what was d3. Chief Bubble Sadie is also a big business inspiration for me too!

What is your favourite thing about being a Bubble?
Every day is different. We are always learning and we all really take pride in what we do. Along with the day to day activities, I also love industry tradeshows, meeting up with press and clients, along with new faces, and walking the show floors proudly in the renowned Bubble striped shirts!
