Joel Bush, Partner
Joel brings over 10 years of experience in social networking, community building, account and project management, and political campaign consulting and fundraising. He has provided strategic counsel to non-profits, political candidates, and issue campaigns on building and implementing online communications plans, social networks, and websites.
He joined Capellic as a partner in 2012. Before joining Capellic, Joel was the Social Networking Manager at Common Knowledge. In this capacity he oversaw all technical projects at Common Knowledge and was the lead consultant on all social media related projects. He has worked with dozens of large and medium nonprofits including Operation Smile, the National 4-H Council, Habitat for Humanity, ASPCA, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and many others.
Prior to Common Knowledge, Joel ran his own internet consulting business (Momentum Communications), served as the Online Communications Director for the Westly for Governor (California) campaign, Deputy Chief Information Officer for the State of California, and Deputy Director of Operations for Governor Gray Davis Committee. Joel's interest in the web began as a summer intern working for the Central Intelligence Agency, where he developed and spearheaded the development of the CIA's "Homepage for Kids."
When Joel isn't working, he's running, or at least thinking about running…or he’s chasing down his 2-year old daughter. He generally prefers being outside than in. His favorite trip of all time was a four day hike on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.
Joel graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Arts in Government.
Stephen Musgrave, Founder & Partner
Stephen has over 15 years of web/internet experience, starting with his days as an intern at Novell where he was first exposed to this thing called the "World Wide Web". Growing up in the technologically fertile grounds of Silicon Valley, Musgrave graduated with honors from San Jose State University in 1997. He took a job with Accenture's TIS division for emerging technologies and worked on web projects for Gateway Computers. Musgrave then joined Live365.com, the largest community of online radio stations in the world. As a senior software engineer, he contributed to the development of web-based broadcasting tools, as well as listener features.
Stephen founded Capellic in 2002, where he has served non-profit, arts and progressive organizations. He joined Common Knowledge as lead Drupal website architect, builder, themer and module developer for two years and has now returned to Capellic to continue his work with non-profits.
For Stephen, the internet is only as useful as it is helpful to improving society and culture. Using technology to build capacity at the community level is his passion.
Stephen is currently serving as the president of his neighborhood association in downtown Jersey City, is a founding member of Connect JC, a Facebook group focused on matching media professionals with local non-profits and civic efforts, and is building the new website for the Embankment Preservation Coalition, a historic, elevated railroad structure in his neighborhood.
Stephen enjoys rummaging through dusty record bins for rare new wave, catching a soccer game here and there and, like Joel, running, though not nearly as far.
