Joe grew up living all over the world in places such as Germany, England, Philippines, Texas, Louisiana and Colorado. He graduated with a BS Degree in Engineering from LSU in Baton Rouge, LA. Immediately after graduating, Joe began working in the IT field developing complex software systems using many different programming languages. Through the course of his 20+ year career, he has worked for major Fortune 100 companies, such as Frito-Lay and Verizon, serving in roles as a Software Developer, Software Architect and Application Manager for complex distributed systems, managing up to 50 employees both on-shore and off-shore.
Joe leveraged his IT experience to start Appware Labs, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, which focuses on developing professional websites for small to medium size businesses. “I recognized there is a need for businesses to benefit from much better websites than they are currently using. Many websites are not mobile-friendly, are not up to date with the latest design principles and lack the focus to convert customers. I enjoy working directly with the users and find it extremely satisfying to see a happy client. ”
Outside of developing websites, Joe enjoys the outdoors and is an avid mountain biker.
