Joshua Sophy

Joshua Sophy is the Assistant Editor for Small Business Trends. Joshua supervises day-to-day operations of Small Business Trends’ busy editorial department including the editorial calendar and outgoing assignments.

He is a journalist with 17 years of experience in traditional and online media.

Joshua got his start in the rough and tumble newspaper business of Pennsylvania’s coal region, first as a sports writer and later as a beat reporter covering daily news.

He would eventually found his own local newspaper, the Pottsville Free Press, covering his hometown. There, he served not only as editor but also doing layout and even delivering the paper and selling ads.

Joshua eventually moved to the online copywriting world after another stint as a weekly newspaper editor for the Journal Register company.

Joshua joined Small Business Trends as the regular breaking news and tech writer in 2013. There he covered such memorable events as the launch of Instagram video.

A student of graphic design at Waynesburg College (now Waynesburg University), he also provides many of the graphic overlays for feature images on the site.
