Born and raised in The PNW with no plans on ever leaving, Joel founded The Great PNW in 2013 when he couldn’t find an apparel company that expressed his love for The NorthWest. He spends most of his days brainstorming what’s next for the company and constantly replying to emails with “Sorry for the delayed reply…”. A graphic designer to his core, Joel oversees all creative that gets put out into the world. When not corralling everything at the office, Joel spends most of his time corralling 4 little munchkins who keep him equally as busy as The Great PNW.
