“Joel grew up in Northern Virginia outside of Washington D.C. Growing up, he enjoyed music in school and started a rock band with his best friend in the tenth grade. The band went on to record three original records and tour all over the world (mostly in the U.S.). After ten years in the band, Joel moved on, fell in love, and ended up in Brooklyn, NY to be with me. He’s worn many hats throughout his career: Singer, Songwriter, Sound Engineer, Event Manager, Front End Web Developer, QA Tester, Software Engineer.
Day to day, Joel is genuine, insightful, and gentle but also a smart aleck. He’s not afraid to get lost in deep conversation talking about feelings and life. He is relational and deep, but also quick to laugh at himself. He immerses himself in his work and dedicates his full attention to any project he works on. These days he spends a lot of time learning how to be a better engineer. When he’s not coding, he’s working out or playing guitar.
Joel is very caring and thoughtful. Our son, Zeke adores him and he is the best Dad. He is always teaching Zeke new things and singing along to Zeke’s favorite Disney songs. They have fun at the playground going down the big slide together and also kicking the soccer ball around.”
“Joel is genuine, insightful, gentle, and smart. He is not afraid to get lost in deep conversations about feelings and life.”
Brooklyn, NY: Janna, Joel, & Zeke are a loving family looking to adopt a baby.
