Joe is an adventurous man with a dry sense of humor — constantly entertained by the antics of his employees and customers.Managing Midway may seem like an exhausting job, but his motor doesn't stop running when he's not working. He has been competing in triathlons for 25 years, and spends 12 to 15 hours per week training for them. He has participated in races all over the world, including the 'Iron Man' and the famous "Escape from Alcatraz" triathlon in San Francisco.

Joe also enjoys the outdoors, and is a very enthusiastic trout fisherman. He and his wife Megan have two sons.
