Joel enjoys problem solving, whether it involves your financial/tax situation or getting the bulldozer started at his family’s ranch. Joel loves exploring Montana with his wife Jesse and son Warren, especially the Beartooth Mountains around Cooke City. When he isn’t in the office Joel may be found looking for elk or on the many trout streams Montana has to offer. If you find him at the tailgates in Missoula during a Grizzly football game have him buy you a Cold Smoke.
