Joel worked for several years as a daylighting consultant before he accepted an entry-level position at a leading global healthcare firm. Because of his experience in analysis and design, he is able to clearly communicate the value of data connections. This passion for data and design culminated in a principal position, where he focused on ways to elevate design through the use of data. He has a passion for data connections that enable multiple objectives to be accomplished simultaneously.
Erik and Joel founded Linear A on the belief that a symbiotic relationship between design and data generates value for the projects they work on together. He is a problem-solver at heart, and always looks for ways to move beyond the status quo. He believes in creating meaningful outcomes through the use of bespoke tools and democratizing access to design thinking and data analysis.
