Hey, thanks for checking out my new website!

If you ask me who I am, I will say, hey, just Joe. An average guy doing average things. But I wanted to share my passions with the world and create connections to people who share those passions. So check out my writing blog or my travel pictures or my history section or my new role in life as a stepdad.

Let me know what you think, what you like, what could be better or even if you’d like to post something. A picture. A writing tip. Thoughts on history. Some advice on being a stepdad. Whatever. I promise to respond.

Like me, this website will be a growing, adapting and expanding over time. Check back every so often or sign up for my newsletter.
