Joe was in born Detroit, MI. He is one of those people who’s drawn for as long as he could hold a pencil. As a result, he suffers from a grotesque callous on his right middle finger. The saddest of the 3 remaining fingers exist on his gnarled drawing paw.
Joe cut his chops in the early 90’s working under the steady guidance of native Detroiter and comic pro, Arvell Jones. Shortly thereafter, he met Gary Carlson, publisher of Big Bang Comics. Joe penciled stories for 4 different issues of the retro comic mag in the early Image days. Joe moved to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts, and while there, got his first taste of working for the “Big 2” when he penciled the now infamous Baby’s First Deadpool Book for Marvel Comics. Joe received his BFA with honors in 2000. Some past clients include: DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Simon & Schuster, Myrmidon Press, Bally Gaming, DMA Animation, Outlines Inc., and Powell Skateboards.
