Designing innovative building systems is one thing. Getting them documented in a way that clearly communicates how they should be built is another. It’s Joe’s job to get everything on paper, and that’s more complicated than it sounds. With his technical expertise in the 3D clash detection capabilities of Revit, Joe integrates multidisciplinary engineering designs, attends meetings to record review comments, and coordinates internal and external changes, all without ruffling a hair of his carefully cultivated (and widely admired) beard.
Since he spends much of his work day sitting (or standing) at a desk working in Revit, Joe tries to fit exercise into his daily activities. He has a spin bike for his home office, so instead of plopping on the couch at night he’ll do 30 minutes to an hour of pedaling while he catches up on his must-see shows. The routine has helped him be a little healthier, he says, and it fits in with the TEECOMfit culture!
All Sports, All the Time
Want to see Joe get enthused? Ask him about sports. Any sports. While he grew up screaming for soccer, he’s a fan of all the Bay Area teams: Raiders, Giants, Sharks. Recently, he experienced a Top Three Life Moment: attending the Breeder’s Cup Distaff. Two horses were neck-to-neck going down to the wire, and the crowd was buzzing. Being there live, says Joe, was amazing.
Rod and Reel
On the quieter sporting side, Joe likes to escape the city and put in some time at the end of a fishing pole. He doesn’t really care about catching anything; he just likes the excuse to be out in nature. His “reel time” locations of choice include the Northern California coast, where he enjoys surf fishing, and the Delta in the Rio Vista or San Joaquin area, where he partakes in fresh water fishing. It’s something he’s done since high school, and in a way it helps Joe get back to his roots.
