Joshua Lindquist


News Reporter, Feature Writer, and Guide Editor

Joshua Lindquist joined Zelda Universe as a feature writer in August 2011. Since then, he has become involved in nearly every team at Zelda Universe, including the news, media, wiki, and development teams. In 2013, he was appointed leader of the guide team while playing a pivotal role in redesigning the guides for the Zelda Universe relaunch in early 2014. He currently oversees the development of all guide content on Zelda Universe, including both written and video guide content.

Joshua joined the Zelda Universe staff as a writer, and he has never stopped writing. He continues to be an active member of the features team, having recently reviewed Hyrule Warriors, and news team. Not one to just sit back and “oversee”, Joshua also writes guides for Zelda Universe.

As a team leader, and member of almost every team at Zelda Universe, Joshua is a primary representative and contact for all events and collaboration in North America, especially Texas and the southern United States.

Prior to joining the Zelda Universe team, Joshua operated his own Zelda site from 2002 to 2009. In 2006, he became one of the founding bureaucrats (wiki terminology for “leadership team member”) of Zelda Wiki, Zelda Universe’s sister-site — a position he continues to hold in 2014.
