Joel Christiansen

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.

Outside of work, you'll find me gardening, walking, cycling, sailing small boats, and reading. You can find me on GitHub and LinkedIn.
