A portrait of Joel and Jessica

We live in Minnesota, in a house we built near some railroad tracks in Minneapolis. Joel was born in Two Harbors, a small town on the north shore of Lake Superior. Jessica is from Niagara Falls, Ontario. Both are voracious readers. They do not have a preference between paperback and hardcover, but tend to avoid first editions.

Jessica studied violin through Grade 10 in Canada’s Royal Conservatory system, and teaches violin and piano. Joel’s self-taught guitar skills peaked sometime around 2002.

Joel would consider a career in forestry if it did not involve so much travel.
