Born and raised in Hong Kong, Joel moved to Los Angeles in 2009 to study guitar performance at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Joel stumbled upon PCC one month after moving into town, and it has been his church home ever since. When he is not serving on stage or behind the scenes at PCC, Joel has an active work schedule in the LA music scene, as a performer, songwriter, and educator. In his (rare!) free time, Joel enjoys hiking, biking, traveling and eating out with friends.
