ABOUT JOE: Inspired by parents to travel the world at a young age by living abroad, Joe has been all over: Europe, Africa, Asia, South America, and too many other places to be interesting to list. He has a degree in Film and began working in the film industry in San Francisco, followed by a progression into his main passion, Documentary Film. He has filmed a few feature length projects along with many smaller shorts, some of which have gotten awards. He went vegan recently (~2009) and has been enjoying delicious healthy food ever since. If you want to get on his good side, bring him something spicy!
