Joe hails from the small, rural, town of Richmond, Indiana. In 2013, he felt called to work with the homeless by becoming a City Host with CSM in Chicago. After his life changing summer with CSM, Joe completed his degree in Psychology and Leadership at Indiana Wesleyan University. The next year, Joe lived out his newfound values by living in intentional community and volunteering full time with Mission Year in Philadelphia. In 2016, Joe chose to merge his hosting knowledge with his newfound love for Philadelphia by joining the CSM Philadelphia team as the Associate City Director. Joe hopes that he will be able to learn more about the whole city of Philadelphia while empowering hosts and groups to take lessons learned in the city and apply them to their hometowns. Joe hopes to one day visit every local Philly coffee shop and watch each movie on AFI’s 100 Years 100 Movies list.
