A thrill seeker to the core, it’s no wonder Joe chose firefighting as a profession. Whether he’s running into burning buildings, speeding down a mountain on his bike, or falling to the ground from a plane at speeds of 200 MPH, he never gets tired of that adrenaline rush! He grew up in Franklin, WI, so like any red-blooded Wisconsinite, his favorite season is “Packer Season”. Joe earned his degree in Fire Science from Milwaukee Area Technical College in 2003. Joe realized that his true passion didn’t come from saving buildings, but rather from saving people, so he went back to earn his Paramedic certification from Gateway Technical College in 2007. Joe is a member of the International Association of Fire Fighters, and lives in Milwaukee with his wife and two children. Also a die-hard Metallica fan, we may soon see Joe trying out for Mike’s band, Roast Beef!
