You expect us to complete your projects on time. As our Project Coordinator, Joel makes sure that happens — he keeps our ducks in a row!
Joel is driven and motivated by three things: a love for people, business and life-long learning. His journey to Compass was a long and diverse one, and included fundraising and marketing for non-profits, real estate sales, working in restaurants and even a stint as a Walt Disney World Cast Member in Orlando, Florida!
Joel holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a Minor in Tourism as well as a User Experience Design Diploma. His brain is always busy thinking about branding and marketing and how they impact people’s buying decisions and overall experience.
As a 90’s kid who grew up watching Disney and Pixar movies, working at the Disney park was one of the highlights of his career so far. He was able to learn firsthand how to create “magical” experiences for others by using immersive storytelling techniques, and the value of delivering world-class service. He uses these skills and experiences at Compass to support the team and the work we do for you.
Joel is interested in anything related to entertainment, follows most mainstream sports and actively collects various memorabilia — most notably Disney. (We sense a theme here…)
He’s married to an opera singer and his claim to fame is being an extra in Sleepwalking, starring Charlize Theron and Woody Harrelson. Unfortunately, his scene didn’t make the final cut!
