Joey is a writer, editor, and musician who enjoys the craft of storytelling. He has worked as a journalist, an editor for a software magazine, a copywriter for an online marketing firm, a content and community manager for a nonprofit website, and a technical editor for software documentation. He currently works as a technical program manager at VMware and is a former board member and enthusiastic supporter of Half Access.

Before the global pandemic, he drummed in the Portland bands The Skeleton Keys and My Proper Skin.

Joey likes building creative relationships, brainstorming new solutions to tricky problems, helping people communicate more clearly and effectively, and losing/finding himself for a few hours in a book, an album, or a forest. When he's not wordsmithing, he often can be found composing music that he uses to entertain his cats.
