At a young age, Joe convinced his mother to let him stay up late so he could explore every inch of Hyrule on the NES. As he got older, he realized that that type of persistence and sharing of curiosity could be powerful in creating experiences for others to explore their potential.
Currently, Joe has taken his curiosity to task in efforts to advocate for the reinvention of conference experiences and innovation within first-year programs at community colleges.
Joe takes his child-like curiosity and unrelenting grit, injects it into his daily activities, and uses it to drive students, colleagues, and communities to explore their, sometimes unknown, capabilities. Some call Joe an instigator while others describe him as an innovator. He considers himself a champion for change.
Joe believes that everyone is a student of life as they should attempt to learn something new every day from anyone who has something to teach. He also attempts to read books as fast as he eats his French toast. His favorite thing is witnessing potential be realized by those who never imagined they had so much. On that note, finish this sentence “If there is one thing I’d like to say I accomplished by the end of this year it would be…” and e-mail it to Joe (just click here!)
