Joel is an outdoor enthusiast and engineer with a passion for hiking, skiing and road-trips. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary, he began exploring options to combine his hard skills in engineering and design with his interests in the outdoors. Shortly after starting the Technical Apparel Design program Joel found an opportunity to put his skills to the test where he is working on the development team at Stoko Design Inc. At Stoko, he pushes the bounds of traditional joint support by designing products that fit, feel, and function like the human body.
