Joel Kuschke

Creative Director

How do you spend your time outside of work?
I love spending my free time fishing, all year long. I escape the heat of summer by saltwater fishing on the rocky coast of southern Maine. In the spring and fall, I love fly fishing rivers and brooks. When the snow flies and the water freezes, I get out before the first light for a day of ice fishing.

What is one place in Maine you have never visited but want to?
I’d love to go on a multi-day canoe and camping trip on the Rapid River in western Maine

Who is your favorite Maine “celebrity”?
Kevin Eastman, creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Drawing ninja turtles may be the thing that kicked off my love for art.
