We’re Joel and Janna. Yes, both our names coincidentally start with a “J”. Our paths first crossed because of our love for music. Janna noticed Joel when he was singing and playing guitar in a rock band. Despite being the lead singer, Joel was very shy so Janna made sure they ended up talking. We hit it off one particular weekend and it’s been “us” ever since.
In 2019 we expanded our family and adopted our son, Zeke. He brings love, energy, and laughter to our home everyday. He is inquisitive, loves his cars, loves to explore, climb, and loves playing with water most of all.
We have lived in Brooklyn, NY for quite some time. Our apartment is close to a subway stop, five bodegas, and two pizzerias with the same name (all within a two block radius). Even though it’s busy, we have an apartment we nicknamed “Castlevania” that’s high enough to be a quieter place where we can relax with Zeke and our two hairless sphynx cats, Dracula and Gomez.
Joel is a Software Engineer who makes iPhone apps. Janna is a Director of Event Production who throws parties and events for a living. We love hosting people, channeling our creative passions, and exploring new places and experiences. There is laughter and sass when we are together. We love visiting our family in South Jersey and watching Zeke play with his cousins. Our desire is to continue growing our family and the love we all share with one another.
