After leaving the military, Joe distinguished himself in the private sector, working with detective and contract security firms throughout the United States.
He also holds a passion for literature and the arts, writing media scripts and freelancing for corporate firms as well as performing in advertising campaigns, television and print.
He says that in his lifetime, he's had, "Pretty much every kind of job imaginable. From hotel management, to inventing and subsequently promoting holistic treatments for common diseases and disorders, to years of providing supports for disabled populations . . . I've probably been involved in some way or another with every profession in existence. To me, the notion that variety is the spice of life is an understatement."
