Here are some other fun facts about Joel!

Before working at SharpNet, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’d ever had?

J: SharpNet is the only real job I’ve had. Of the other odd jobs I’ve done, the craziest was working the concession stand at a basketball game in middle school.

 

How did you first learn about SharpNet?

J: My dad 🙂

 

How do you balance your career at SharpNet and your free time?

J: I don’t think I’m very good at balancing them, but I try to keep work at the office and not work from home too much.

 

How has SharpNet helped you in your career development?

J: I would not have any career really outside of SharpNet, and I’ve learned so much from my awesome co-workers. SharpNet has basically taught me almost everything I know about my career.

 

If you could pick one theme for SharpNet to turn into a book about the company, what would it be?

J: A noir detective novel starring John as the grizzled lead detective and the rest of the team as supporting characters.

 

Any random facts you could share?

J: I’m a big fan of TTRPGs (tabletop role-playing games) and I ran a game at SharpNet at one point.

 

Are you messy or organized?

J: Messy for sure.

 

Best vacation you’ve been on?

J: I’ve been on a lot of wonderful ones, but I think my trip to Hawaii is probably the most memorable. Such a beautiful and relaxing trip.

 

If you could be any force of nature, what would it be?

J: Wind. Mostly because air bending seems dope.
