What’s up, I’m Joel.
I’m a writer, journalist, photographer, and now blogger.
Currently, I’m the editor with The Oshawa Express newspaper, an experience that has turned me into the 2015 Reporter of the Year within the Ontario Community Newspaper Association and won me multiple awards for feature writing, education writing and investigative reporting.
I’ve been published in countless magazines and publications including the hippest community newspaper in Kitchener-Waterloo The Community Edition, Golf Canada Magazine, Ontario Sailor and Active Senior’s Digest.
I also write fiction, having several short stories under my belt and I’m currently working on my second novel.
However, my start in writing was in journals, when I was barely a teenager. I loved writing about the exploits of my three brothers and I (something I still love to do).
In this journal and blog I will share with you my passions for all the things listed above, along with my love for the outdoors, travel and living a happy life.
I work hard, really hard, and it’s my unwavering belief that in the end, hard work pays off. I hope my work inspires you to perhaps adopt the same philosophy.
Thanks for checking in.
