About Joel

Funny how spending a bunch of years doing something like running a newspaper gets you so much knowledge and experience in things you'd never expect. Like marketing, communications, digital and content strategy, and leadership. As a communications consultant, I've helped companies and nonprofits with their outreach strategies, which has been transformational for them.

The Refined Story

September 2015 - Today

Life’s too short to be stuck with a lousy online experience. That’s why I use my content and digital expertise to help companies grab hold of their editorial and digital potential. With more than a dozen years as editor-in-chief and digital leader of a regional news organization, I created new content sources to reach untapped audiences and spearheaded app development and deployment, all with an eye on putting the user first.
