Punch line

noun: the final phrase or sentence of a joke or story, providing the humor or some other crucial element

Everyone has something to say. Some of us use humor to speak, some speak through creating art, raising functional human beings or writing the next NY Times best seller. Maybe you've started a company that says something clear to a specific niche or you started a social media movement and it's speaking volumes beyond what you imagined.

Regardless of the platform or audience, your life is crucial and it says something. That's exciting (and frightening) to think about. 

About Me


I’m Joy and I currently live in Paris, France via Portland, Oregon. I've had several different gigs, roles, fields of study, and industry observations all culminating into what I call, Punchline Speakers.

My experience has included roles as: conference director; producer; speaker; podcaster; content creator and consultant; video personality; writer; literary and speaking agent. I once won a bedroom set and $40 worth of Lysol on the Price Is Right, which I wish I could say also shaped my career path.

Fine, I'll say it. 

As a longtime lover of communication, a natural promoter and connector of people, I'd love to find a speaker for your event or discuss your next idea, keynote or project.


P.S. This is my husband, Matt. His job is the reason we live in France and I also happen to think he's cute so I wanted to show you his picture.
