Joel comes from a small gulf island in the Straight of Georgia called Saltspring. Growing up in these calm surroundings away from traffic jams & stresses of the big city allowed him to study, learn, & perform magic in a positive creative environment. However, in time Joel began to grow tired of the same old scene, not having to pay for parking, & seeking a larger cliental to perform for, he moved to Vancouver, BC. Soon afterward, realizing he grew up in the best place on earth, & Saltspring is paradise.
