Believe it or not, Joe wasn't always this cool. He was pretty much the definition of a geek growing up. As a member both of the math and bowling teams in high school, his social future did not look bright. He graduated from Long Island University with a nerdy accounting degree and began his first career as a consultant. After being trapped in a cubicle for years, Joe realized he didn't want to die a slow, corporate death void of human interaction. So he took a job as a personal shopper at a store that sells baby items (even though he's not married and has no kids), and broke out of his nerdy shell to become the loud, in-your-face individual he is today. Joe spends his spare time eating with his big Italian family and mastering his role as the world's greatest uncle.
