Joe has had an interest in audio and music ever since he was a kid. What started as a fascination with his parents' vinyl records and cassette tapes turned into a love of both performing and recording. He grew up in Elizabethtown, PA and moved onto Pittsburgh in 1999 where he majored in Photography at the University of Pittsburgh. In 2004 he attended the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, AZ, and then returned to Pittsburgh to intern and subsequently become employed there by a recording studio. He returned to Elizabethtown in 2007 and began working for WITF in 2008 where his skills have found a good home both in on-air hosting and audio work.
