Joel is an itinerant journalist who lives somewhere out in the ether and is haunted by the question “where are you from?”

His most recent semi-permanent post saw him cover arts and culture for the Savannah Morning News. He has been published in a variety of news publications, and is preparing to move to Italy for reasons unknown but related to his view of “life” as a kind of performance art.

And he is most certainly, definitely not a hipster. Which is sort of like saying you’re not a drunk – others will be the judge of that.
