Hi, I'm Joel. This is my personal website. For the last year, I've been using it to stash albums and words that spoke to me for one reason or another.
I live in Bellingham, Washington and work as a software developer. I love bringing ideas to life and then patiently refining them. I value clean aesthetics and thoughtfully simple technology implementations.
I am currently a Senior Software Engineer at Unreasonable Group supporting entrepreneurs, mentors, partners, and investors. To learn more about our work, I recommend the recent article titled Nurturing Innovation (Harvard Business Review, March/April 2024), which provides a great, in-depth summary of what we do.
Before transitioning into writing code, I practiced law in Portland, Oregon, with a focus on business immigration and labor rights advocacy. I changed careers to participate more actively in creating the world I want to see.
