Hi, I'm Joel -
Developer, Aspiring Designer,
Learner and Maker.
I care deeply about making wonderful, powerful things and making a positive impact.
I'm fascinated by the idea of making programming better. Programmers jump from technology to technology distressingly fast, while failing to address fundamental problems. I hope to play a part in improving tools, stabilizing the tech stack, and making programming more accessible. I've been working hard on a not-yet-released programming environment called Pigment.
Previously I worked for Khan Academy from 2011 to 2015, where I learned how to make good software from a very talented team. You can see some of my work in the open source Perseus and React components projects.
