Joel is the Assistant Editor for News & Entertainment and has been reporting on all things pop culture for over 2 years. Before working at PureWow, he served as a Features Editor at ROCKET Magazine. When he's not dissecting the latest trends in entertainment (or guiding you on what to watch), he covers all the hottest red carpet looks and fashion movements. When he steps away from the keyboard, you can likely find him at an NYC concert, thrift store or LGBTQ+ bookstore happily perusing the shelves.
PureWow is the best friend you never had when it comes to finding the best, most useful lifestyle products online.
