About Joel:

 Our 5-year-old daughter took this shot. We're considering hiring her for 99 Hills work.

Our 5-year-old daughter took this shot. We're considering hiring her for 99 Hills work.

He grew up as a Pastor’s Kid and a Missionary Kid, which is a whole story in itself. He lived with his family in South America for 10 years before he met Jenn in ’99. It was while living overseas that Joel began a passion for all things tech/video/audio. It’s also where he learned the value of telling stories. He loves the process of making art that will move people or call them to action. He has a history of making videos that inspire life change. He’s into the details and tedious process of telling the right story - the one that begs to be told. Joel loves all foods spicy, is a loyal University of Kentucky basketball fan and alumna (Go Cats!) and makes a mean pancake & egg breakfast.

About Jenn:

Jenn was born and raised in south Florida (one of the few natives!) and it will always hold a huge piece of her heart. Having been the social butterfly of her friends, she planned outings, events and keeps everyone connected. This led to an unrealized talent for her to help churches, businesses and individuals engage with their audience. She received a BA in Journalism & Mass Communication from Samford University, but when she said "Samford" people mostly heard "Stanford", so she just went with that. She first joined Facebook in 2004 -- the year it launched. So you could say she's kind of a big deal. She spends her time on social media sharing quippy things her kids say and their cute faces. She loves to cook, read and spend quality time with her family.
