Joe started working in Minnesota on agriculture, infrastructure development, and shoreline management at the county level. After 26 crappy winters and 144 days without the temperature rising above 40 degrees, he moved out west to Boise. During this time, Joe pursued a part time gig as a tri-athlete and competed nationwide including the Ironman World Championships in Kona and across the pond in the Netherlands at the Duathlon World Championships (Run 15k, bike 60k, run 10k). He also worked on land development and city planning and transitioned to NEPA Environmental reviews for large transportation projects with a large engineering firm.
He built his resume working on everything from wind farms, bridge EIS (SR-520 SDEIS), interchanges, toll roads (SR-99 Grand Parkway), programmatic EIS (I-70), and linear transportation EIS projects (State Highway 16 EIS). He also managed the regulatory compliance for installation a crude pipeline in north Denver before joining T-O. He now spends his time working on business development for our environmental projects and delivery of projects subject to NEPA reviews and Clean Water Act permits. In his free time, Joe manages a small farm in Northwest Boise where he farms over 3,500 grape plants and just finished his first bottling from the 2017 harvest.
