Joel has been at Youth Moves for nearly 2 years.

He started off volunteering on various groups, and eventually went on to become a sessional member of staff. 

At present he is part of the targeted youth service team, working with young people on a one to one and group basis. His major specialism is using the arts and music as a vehicle to engage young people.

Alongside his work here, he is also studying for a degree at university.

In his spare time Joel also writes and produces his own music, and is a big Lord of the Rings fan. So big that he describes his love as so 'hardcore that I decided to get a tribute tattoo, all round my leg.'
