Just call me Joe.

  • This is my second website/blog - the first was at wordsarenotenough.com, which I ran from 2006-2017.
  • I was married and hired at my current job in the same week. My wife is a first grade teacher, and I help post-traditional, graduate, and doctoral students get started with their studies.
  • Christmas is my favorite time of the year, even though it never gets cold where I live. Dachshunds might be the best dogs, but that's just how I feel. Beagles are pretty great, too.
  • I took the MBTI test once, and it said I'm an INTJ, but only the J is strong. The Internet thinks I'm an Enneagram Type 4, but maybe none of that's real.
  • This list is bulleted because I couldn't come up with a better biography. Did you know you're not supposed to punctuate bulleted lists?
  • Apparently I'm a rule-breaker.
