Originally from rural England, Joe has been in the US for 4 years, arriving in the Bay Area via Portland, Oregon. After university, he moved to London to teach, middle and high school Physics, Biology and Chemistry. After many short trips in school holidays, Joe caught the travel bug and bought a round-the-world ticket. This voyage included his first US road trip, ending in Berkeley, before moving on to the Antipodes and Southeast Asia. After a couple more years of London teaching, he waited on his Green Card application, working in beautiful New Zealand. In the US, he has taught at alternative schools in Portland and the East Bay.
Joe spends much of his free time out and about with his family and dog in the Oakland & Berkeley hills. He has kept up a hobby for running, after having a great experience with Queens Park Harriers Athletics Club in west London. He plays ukulele and enjoys watching soccer. Joe still enjoys travelling and camping here in California.
