Hi, I'm Joel. I hate writing bios. I made the stuff on this website. I’m from Alabama. I live in Chicago. I have dogs. I make music. I teach young designers. I like boots. I'm an early adopter. I look really smug in my photo because I was given that direction–it was for a work thing. Also, I can't for the life of me figure out how to stop this site from opening a new page when you click the 'home' link. I'm sorry.
