Contact Me

In general, I can be reached via email, although you may find other methods more appropriate depending on your purpose. Please consider encrypting your emails to me using PGP, particularly if you’re sending me anything that would not be appropriate for the back of a postcard. My PGP key may be retrieved from the SKS keyserver pool or most other public PGP key servers. My PGP key ID is 0xA8B51F5E8032CCE4 and my key fingerprint is FB29 8ABB E1D0 0A1C 8FA4 DC1F A8B5 1F5E 8032 CCE4.

If you’re contacting me about career opportunities, my résumé is available as a PDF download and you may feel free to please review my LinkedIn profile. Please note that I am not currently seeking new employment opportunities, nor am I open to considering changing jobs.

If you’re contacting me about an open-source project I’m involved with, please consider whether another avenue is more appropriate. If you have a bug report or a feature request, please follow the standard procedure for whatever project you’re interested in and file a bug report or feature request. If you want to discuss something about the project, please consider the public forums available instead. Email is almost always not the best option, since few people benefit from private email and many people benefit from public discussions. However, I do recognize that different people have different circumstances, so please feel free to send an email if you have something not appropriate for public discussion.

For anything else, please email me. Please note, I do not wish to receive unsolicited commercial electronic messages (CEMs), unsolicited bulk emails (UBEs), unsolicited commercial emails (UCEs), or any similar unsolicited mass communication of any kind. All violations will be reported to the Canadian Anti-Spam Centre in accordance with the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation and/or with the Federal Communications Commission in accordance with the United States CAN-SPAM legislation as appropriate.

Joel is a solid worker and very technically savvy. What he doesn't know he can learn and what he knows he shares freely with others.

Joel brings creativity and know-how to any IT project. Constantly striving to find new ways to do new things or to do existing things better, Joel brings tremendous value to any team. A talented developer, Joel has played a key role in helping the University of New Brunswick establish its first internal portal for students, faculty and staff. That portal project has had a profound and positive impact on the university.

Joel was the top-tier talent of Student Consultants during his time with me. He earned the designation of Senior Student Consultant which recognizes his extraordinary skills and abilities (a designation only given out to one or two Students each year). I would highly recommend Joel in any endeavour he pursues.
