As an architect, his leadership on projects span several industries, and his resume includes a spectrum of research & development facilities, office spaces, healthcare facilities, and educational environments. But even more important than what he knows and has done, is his passion to learn what he hasn’t learned and deep-dive into rabbit holes to find answers and creative solutions. Learning new things IS his comfort zone.
He preaches collaboration and backs it up by leading other industry professionals as the president of the state’s CSI chapter. (There’s a gavel on his desk, and we all know when a gavel’s involved, it’s official stuff.)
When meeting Joel for the first (or second, or tenth) time, be prepared to ooh and ahh over the adorable pictures he’ll show you of his new little guy, the pride and joy of him and his wife Breanna. And while his official touring days with his rock band might be over (fingers crossed for a reunion tour), Joel can still be found letting loose on his drum set from time to time. Of course not during nap-time or bed-time, that is.
