- Ripon College grad (self-designed major in Mass Media Management)
- Background in broadcasting and theatre
Now that the “resume” portion is over, the main thing you should know about Joe is that he is a huge nerd. And not just in the typical “nerdy” stuff (although he’ll talk your ear off about video games, tabletop games, D&D, and Batman) but he really geeks out over finding solutions for clients. Whether it’s working with our Geeks & Creatives to launch their brand new website or chatting over coffee about a ways to connect with other community organizations, Joe strives to be your idea builder.
Away from wisnet, after many years of adventures together, Joe and his partner are now on the ultimate adventure: Raising a son. So lots of time with family to make the most of it. And, when there’s time, battling the backyard to try to get the grass to grow.
