As a youth, he competitively played baseball, soccer, and ice hockey through his high school years, with one year on the college hockey team, followed by three years of club hockey. Ice hockey was his passion, as a goalie since the age of eight, and he was still playing hockey in a men's league in California through the age of 57. Joe moved to Sacramento, Ca at the age of 27, being promoted to a sales management position while with the U.S. Gypsum Chemical Division. He eventually moved on to other outside sales stints in the construction industry, spending the last fourteen years with Garland Industries.
