Joe is originally from Tampa but has lived in North Carolina for the last five years. He's married with an amazing daughter named Ella, and a son named Robbie. His family has two dogs and two cats, so the house is always very active.
Joe has lived a relatively Bedouin lifestyle so far, never living in the same place or working the same job for too many years. Despite having a bachelor's degree in computer science, he's relatively far removed from using those skills regularly. Joe has lived throughout the United States and for a short period, overseas.

"Overall it’s been a good experience. The people here are kind and have given me a lot of leeway on what we are doing and how we are approaching things. They’ve also given me a ton of resources outside of my specific project."
Joe decided to pursue the master's in data science because his current job leverages the products of large data sets. Previously, he ran a large enterprise of multiple different data sets from traditional telephonic national polling, social media analytics, and other inputs used to bolster government policy and programs.
