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.
