Joe was first appointed as Chapter Director for the Delta-Beta (ΔΒ) Chapter of ΣΠ Fraternity in August 2003. Prior to graduating, Joe served as the chapter's Sage (President) for two terms during 2001 and 2002. He also served as the Social Chairman, Fundraising Chairman, Community Service Chairman, Risk Management Chairman, and Assistant New Member Educator. Outside of the ΔΒ Chapter, Joe was a member of several honor societies and served as the President of the Inter-Fraternity Council.

Once he was appointed Chapter Director, Joe focused on several core programming items including maintaining and improving on the tradition of excellence in the chapter, upgrading all areas of chapter operations, alumni development, and fundraising for chapter scholarships and other purposes. In support of these efforts, he joined with several other alumni to found the Jersey Shore Alumni Club in July 2004. Further, in support of his efforts to raise money to support the active chapter's academic and educational pursuits, he created the ΔΒ Chapter Educational Fund with the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation in December 2005.

For his efforts, Joe was recognized with Sigma Pi Fraternity's Lyle H. Smith Award for Most Outstanding Chapter Director for the 2002 - 2004 period and again for the 2004 - 2006 period. In August 2006, Joe was appointed the Province Archon of New Jersey, making him responsible for the results of 9 chapters and 5 alumni clubs spanning across the state. His efforts in building the New Jersey Province into a powerful area were recognized when he was awarded the Curtis G. Shake Award for Most Outstanding Province Archon for the 2006 - 2008 period. In August 2008, he was also elected to serve a 4 year term on the Sigma Pi Educational Foundation's Board of Trustees. He served as the Foundation's Treasurer from August 2010 through August 2012. He did not seek re-election when his term expired so he could spend more time developing the programs at ΔΒ Chapter where he resumed his role as Chapter Director again in 2010.

Joe works for a statewide, nonprofit loan fund where he primarily focuses on providing financing to charter schools, early care centers, colleges, supportive housing, commercial projects, and small businesses located in economically distressed areas. He is also an Adjunct Professor in Monmouth University's Leon Hess Business School where he teaches undergraduate and graduate level courses on Ethics, Diversity, and Social Responsibility. Also, Joe is an online instructor for Thomas Edison State College where he mentors students enrolled in the School of Business and Management's Nonprofit Leadership, Nonprofit Organizations, Foundations of Leadership, Grant Writing, and Nonprofit Fundraising courses. In addition to these activities, Joe owns a small web maintenance firm and co-owns a t-shirt company focused on providing high quality apparel to fraternities and sororities.

Joe graduated from Monmouth University in 2003 with a Bachelor of the Arts Degree in English and minors in Philosophy, History, and Political Science. In 2006, he graduated from the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University with a Master of the Arts Degree in Public Policy with a concentration in Community Development. He also earned a Graduate Certificate as a Public Relations Specialist from Monmouth University in January 2011 and Post-Master's Certificate in Curriculum Studies in May 2014. Joe is currently enrolled at the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California where he is pursuing a Doctor of Education degree in Organizational Change and Leadership.
