Director of Operations
As the Director of Operations, Joe oversees the overall day to day operations of the Jam Street Media.
He began his professional career serving 15 globe-trotting years in the United States Army, where he excelled in leadership roles, even earning a Bronze Star Medal early in his career.
After leaving the Army in 2012, Joe worked for Triumph Group doing test and development work for their aerospace systems division, and at the same time, began volunteering for several different nonprofit organizations. He led a city-wide neighborhood watch program and a local VFW Post and was a founding member and communications director of the veteran-led non-profit, What They Signed Up For. He also launched a promotional marketing business and wrote for Lima Charlie News.
In late 2016, he took a break from his projects and began attending the Academy of Art University online. His full-time studies in the Communications and Media Technology B.A. program included work in video production, podcasting, short-form writing, and performing on camera. He put extra emphasis on graphic design and social media marketing to round out his diverse communications skill set.
While attending the university online, he also volunteered with their radio station Urban Knights Radio taking on the role of Communications Director, redesigning their website and managing their social media. At the same time, he began remotely producing a weekly music radio show that plays during an afternoon drive time three days a week. At the 2019 Spring Show for the Academy of Art University, he was given the “Urban Knights Radio” award for his contributions to the program.
Before graduating in 2019, he joined Matty and Casey and launched Jam Street Media.
