About Joe


I love teaching! So much so that I’ve made it my full time job. I started freelancing in 2002, and have been a teacher at the college level for over 10 years. I also have my Master’s Degree in Software Engineering.

My passion in both areas drove me to build Creator Courses, a school for those who want to create online businesses. As a big proponent of learning by doing, I loves creating focused, task-driven courses to help students build something.

I also love hearing people’s stories. So when I’m not teaching, I’m interviewing people for my podcast,How I Built It.


In addition to the profession stuff, I love Star Wars, Disney, smoking cigars, and playing the drums.

Words that people use to describe me are: nerd, author, teacher, speaker, and ‘you make websites right?’

I do indeed make websites and really love doing it! I’ve been doing it since high school and it so happens that I made it my hobby and my profession.
