Before joining the team at Newcastle, Joel worked as an executive assistant. Having a passion for languages, he had previously studied Spanish at the University of Madrid, Spain. Most recently, he lived and worked in Puerto Rico as an executive assistant to a Real Estate developer. Being able to incorporate his desire to help people with his love for Spanish is what continues to drive him professionally. He endeavors to utilize his background and experience in client relations to help him be a liaison for Newcastle to the Spanish-speaking community.
Although Joel was born and raised in California, he identifies as a “Citizen of the World.” One of his favorite things to do is travel. He’s been to 18 countries (and counting), mostly backpacking. His goal is to visit Iceland and New Zealand in the near future. Besides traveling, music is a huge passion for him; he goes to 2-3 concerts a month with friends. On the weekends, he enjoys bicycling and spending time with family.
