Joel bought his first computer with money from a lost-baggage settlement. Eight months later, they even found his bag. Win-win.
He's worked in agency, corporate and freelance environments, designing for print media, the web, and more. Photoshop is his "happy place."
Joel is married to the fabulous writer and poet Kathryn T. S. Bass. In his spare time he plays the piano, attempts to photograph his black dog, and reads books like they're going out of style.
