First and foremost, Joe describes himself as a man of God with a passion for intentionally connecting with people and cultivating others spiritually. He is excited to embark on this new ministry with FCA. As he continues to listen to God's calling, he is transitioning over from working in Christian higher education with college students in Massachusetts and South Carolina. During that time Joe worked closely with student athletes, which was just a continuation of his professional involvement in athletics. Prior to that, Joe worked for 6 years for the Detroit Lions as the Manager of Salary Cap and Contract Administration, working alongside the General Manager, President, and VP of Pro Personnel daily to execute team personnel decisions regarding roster management. His responsibilities included scouting players, executing roster moves, negotiating and writing contracts, administering player workouts, managing the team's salary cap, tracking cash flow, and coordinating training camp logistics. Joe has also spent time in administrative roles with the NFL League Office, Detroit Tigers, and Bowling Green State University football.
