Joe grew up in southeast Michigan.  Son to a factory-worker and a nurse, Joe learned the value of hard work from his parents.  From his time running his own small painting outfit Joe learned that to understand the business you need to roll up your sleeves, get on the ladder, on the roof, or in the attic and see how the real work gets done.

​Joe currently serves as an advisor to several (technology) start-ups and small businesses.  He has expertise in financial management, strategic planning, strategic pricing, and operations excellence.  He has a bachelor's degree in finance from Michigan State University, a master's degree in Finance from Indiana University, and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
