A native of Buffalo, New York, Joel Dombrowski was introduced to the natural world by his grandfather. Every weekend, he and his five siblings, his mother, and his grandparents would pile into a car and explore the parks, beaches, and monuments of Western New York and Southern Ontario. These trips fostered a curiosity for the region that he could never quite shake.
After receiving a degree in broadcast journalism from Syracuse University, Joel worked in TV news while performing stand-up comedy on weekends and evenings. After realizing that his true love is storytelling and history, he is now the CFO (Chief Fun Officer) of his own tour company, entertaining visitors to Niagara Falls and Buffalo.
In addition to writing, Joel fishes, hunts, and hypnotizes squirrels (you’ll need to take his tour to find out how). He lives Clarence Center, New York, with his wife and four children.
