Joel is a member of PHIT House Team Big Baby. Joel began improvising in 2010 through Dirty South Improv in Carrboro, North Carolina, where we studied under Zach Ward, Paula Pazderka and Harrison Brookie. Joel has been improvising in Philadelphia since 2011, when he started performing with the indie teams, Malone and Nielsen.
In Philadelphia, Joel studied under Ralph Andracchio, Jess Ross, Kristen Schier, Michael Hochman and Greg Maughan. You can also find Joel performing with indie team Captain Jack Sparrow. When not improvising on stage, Joel can be found improvising at Community Energy, Inc., where he is growing the company’s household green electric customer base (that’s right, anyone in PA can go 100% wind and solar on their electric bill). Joel also co-teaches an energy course in UNC Kenan-Flagler’s MBA program.
