Joel has always wanted to get involved in the industry, but that didn't happen until about 3 years ago due to real life events which influenced his decision to follow his dreams.

He started just like everyone else with the basics, but also practicing and studying nonstop. It began with real clay and then Maya, extending his knowledge to almost every other software. Joel never thought he could make a living out of his art, but look at him now proving himself wrong.
"Whenever you get frustrated, just keep going, because that's when you learn the most"
"Right now, VR I would say, is at the stage of, PlayStation 2"
