Born and raised in San Diego, Joel received his B.A. in English Literature from San Francisco State University. A fan of storytelling, he strongly believes a person can have the greatest idea in the world, but without the ability to tell it right, no one will want to hear about it.
Joel developed his PR background representing enterprise B2B startups in industries such as big data analytics, cloud automated app testing and collaborative work management. In addition to media relations, he has experience managing speaking and awards programs.
Outside of PR, Joel enjoys basketball (both playing and watching), reading and traveling.
