Joe was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and through his own personal policies has been involved with Northwestern Mutual since 1992 when his grandmother started a juvenile policy with the company. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Joe studied in the Lubar School of Business, with a degree in Management Information Systems. Married in 2008 to his wonderful wife Karen, Joe continued their personal planning with his family's representative, James Grogan. This planning, throughout most of his life with Northwestern Mutual, led it's way to fostering his career change starting in 2012.

Joe and Karen enjoy their free time with their 2 children, Jacob and Bella. On weekends they are traveling around supporting Bella's Irish Dance Competitions (called Feiseanna, or Feis). They also have a Golden Retriever named Zaylie who keeps them company on their weekend adventures around the state in the summer. Joe is active in golf, bowling, tennis, and looks forward to continuing his participation in cycling for the National MS Society's Best Dam Bike Ride. 


Through the National MS Society and through the Greater Milwaukee Agency, Joe is also an active supporter in the community. Please visit the attached link for further details.
