Joyful Testimony From Coworkers
"No matter the topic or task, you always have the feeling that Joel has done this before. I am impressed with Joel’s knowledge of the UX space. He has an eye for design and the creativity for problem solving. During critique, Joel can quickly pull up relevant design choices other companies made. He brings to light current, past, and future trends. From the feel of an interface, down to the interactions, Joel helps you see the pros and cons of your options. He has an opinion when it’s helpful and always works towards the team’s agreed upon goals."

"Joel knows when to push creative boundaries to their limit and when to recognize the simpler solution as the best solution. He is a problem solver, a joy to work with and a wiz at mastering new design software. Joel is a smart designer and an effective communicator-- I hope to get the chance to work together again in the near future!"
UX Architect at Clockwork Interactive
"Joel is one of the most creative individuals I have had the pleasure of working with. He is an incredible storyteller and is able to create a relatable analogy for just about any situation. I worked alongside Joel for a couple of freelance projects and he was the first to take on the role of Scrum master and create an organized and efficient process for the team. I appreciate Joel's willingness to give and accept specific feedback graciously. He thinks about people and ideas first which allows for a safe and collaborate space to work. Joel also creates fun and dynamic visual design that will knock your socks off! I hope to have the privilege of working with Joel again someday and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a creative and empathetic team member!"
Product Designer at Target
"Joel is a great mix of thinking outside the box and working within the constraints of the box--he is an artist and former military member, which I think sums up his personality pretty well. He shows up super passionately to his UX work, and is also thoughtful and fun to work with."
