Joe wears multiple hats really, really well. He’s a smart, all-around awesome dude that you’d want to have around doing things because you know they’ll get done. His head is going to get really huge after reading this about himself, but here’s a list of why we love Joe: responsive, smart, can-do attitude, charming, easy-going, and tough when you need him to be. He’s the guy who’s going to have your back and keep you safe. Joe’s the man.
