Joel loves to travel. Traveling to over 100 countries since 2008. In the past 2 years he was on the road 200 days. This past year he went to all 7 continents including napping with the penguins of Antarctica.
Joel is a travel junky, but does have a day job. When he’s not traveling at all ends of the earth he’s managing a collaboration team of 12 at the LDS Church. He is a 12 year SharePoint veteran and was awarded 2012 top SharePoint blog and top influencer in the community.
I believe 100% that St. Augustine is correct, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” and also believe “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home” - James Michener. You’ll see that I fully embrace the food, culture, and faith. I am looking for the richness in life. I want to see life as it is. I am inspired. I seek the churches more than most priests, and more mosques than most Emams, more temples and cathedrals than monks.
