Over the last six years, he’s been focused on completing his first novel, and since 2020, started writing short stories. Recently, he’s been included in the OWA Anthology Outcasts and on theworldswithin.net where he serves as the Science Fiction Editor. Along with writing, Joe has 10 years of leadership experience in non-profits and has helped launch numerous community organizations, including Central City Church, Little Bottoms Free Store, and Grandview Anti-Racism and Inclusion Network (GAIN).
