Before coming to 14 West, he spent time on the IT team at University of Baltimore and as a UX Designer and BA at a digital wellness company. When he found 14 West, he wasn't looking for a new career but he’d heard it was a nice place to work. And once he joined the team, he was glad he did. Within one year, he's launched a brand-new application, been promoted from BA to Product Owner, and he's even taken a work trip to Japan. In his spare time, Joel manages several small business websites, design video gamers, and design mobile applications.
