Detroit Action Strategist

Joe has spent his career in Detroit’s nonprofit sector, primarily in Southwest Detroit and the Brightmoor neighborhoods, working to empower and provide resources to local residents. His work is driven by the belief that community development is not a career choice, but a way of life.

Joe believes that there is not a more innovative and creative city in this country than Detroit and he loves aiding others to discover how to turn their great ideas into a reality for its communities. A native Detroiter who has lived in ten different zip codes in Detroit, Joe currently lives in the East English Village neighborhood with his wife Dana and their two dogs Rosco and Peaches.
