One of four siblings, Joel grew up
on a dairy farm approximately 20 minutes outside of Green Bay,
Wisconsin. During his junior year at Reedsville Public High
School, Joel joined the United States Coast Guard where he
remained with a reserve unit for approximately one year. He then
worked various jobs, included working for a sheet metal company,
as a landscaper and also as a construction worker, before
accepting a job at a health club.
In 1997, Joel relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas, after being
recruited by a financial company whose primary clients are health
clubs. At 25 years old, Joel was hired as a National Account
Manager and became one of the youngest individuals working in his
position, although he quickly proved himself to his peers. In
two-and-a-half years, his contributions have helped the company
generate record-breaking growth.
Joel describes himself as confident, strong-willed and
adventurous. When not traveling the country, Joel enjoys playing
football and golf. His favorite television show is "Arliss,"
and his favorite feature films are "Usual Suspects" and
"Dirty Rotten Scoundrels." His perfect day would start
with a chartered fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico, followed by a
dinner of grilled snapper and mackerel. Enjoying the sunset from
the deck of a condo in Sanibel Island, Florida, he'd smoke a great
cigar while listening to the surf.
Joel currently resides in Sherwood, Arkansas. He is a member of
the International Health & Raquet Sports Association. His
birth date is April 13, 1972.
