Dexerto's Hardware and Deals writer. You can get in touch with him over email: email@example.com. Joel has found himself writing about games and tech for over a decade. He eventually tumbled into university from humble beginnings on his own blogs and independent websites. Joel graduated from the University of Lincoln with a journalism degree, where he and three others set up the first true multimedia outlet for the department, Pixel Shed. After a brief stint in e-commerce converting dry, eye-glazing words into something anyone could understand, he returned to the industry in 2021, writing for small websites like PC Guide and WePC. He also spent time writing for The Metro and Eurogamer's Digital Foundry. His true loves though are bad video games, old tech, and creating things in video or Photoshop. Joel actively seems to be an odd one out on Dexerto, as he still doesn't understand why some of the top streamers are top streamers. However, Joel loves to watch things like Civvie11 and RedLetterMedia. He also plays no esports but loves Magic: The Gathering, Metal Gear, and Twin Peaks and has a vested interest in keeping up with emulation.
