By day, Joel Wegman is cleverly disguised as a software engineer for a large corporation. When he escapes the cubicle-based suppression field, his true form emerges: mad scientist, video game developer, and occasional writer. His contributions to the arts are otherwise small and seldom, but his appreciation for them was strong enough to weather a childhood with prolonged exposure to the theater. When he’s not plotting world domination or working for The Man, he can often be found enjoying campy movies, conducting culinary experiments, or hiking the misty hills. He has been proud to call Portland his home planet since 2008.
