My name is Joel.
For pleasure and profit I currently work at Qualcomm. Before working at Qualcomm, I:
- Supported Mallika Chopra’s launch of the wellness site “Intent“
- Served as Head of Technology for Dan Adler’s Power of Entertainment
- Helped Murray and Jack Hidary launch iAmplify;
- Lead the technology teams for several of Idealab’s portfolio companies, including EntertainNet, KidsOnline, Swap.com and Spun.com.
- Founded Dark Carnival Online, one of the Web’s first media companies.
- Helped write a software clone of the Macintosh for Quorum Software Systems.
I hold a B.S. in computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which is probably why people let me get away with these sorts of things.
For pleasure and less profit I have been involved in a number of other projects including
- writing, recording and performing music
- modeling for fashion and art photographers
- writing prose
- performing (plays, costume parties, etc.)
- hanging out with interesting people and get into all sorts of mischief
Each of these bullets contains at least one story. With any luck I will write about them sooner rather than later.
