Joel Sutherland


Joel Sutherland and Katie Sutherland

I'm Joel, I grew up in Omaha, NE and now am a proud resident of Chapel Hill, NC. I'm lucky to have a great wife, goofy dog, supportive family and awesome job.

I spend most of my time in front of a computer making websites. I am an extreme generalist if there is such a thing;  my time is evenly split between administration, business development, project management, design, front-end development and server-side development.  There isn't any part of it I don't enjoy, so long as the work turns out well and I don't have to do too much of anything at once.  Everybody at work is better than I am at something, but I am proud that I can speak intelligently to everyone there.

Outside of work I love reading, spending time with friends and family and basketball.  I strongly support the Tar Heels as well as every team in the NBA.  It makes me mad that LeBron can't score in the post when I've worked so hard to become mediocre at pickup basketball.
