Get To Know Joe And Why He Said Yes To Being A Model
How did you get roped into doing this, and what was your first thought when asked?
I was asked by Todd Bradshaw and ultimately said yes after talking with Barry Winebrenner. My first thought was that I'm definitely going to fall.
What made you say yes?
I have a hard time saying no and the Boys & Girls Club is a great cause. Being a board member at the Eugene YMCA opened my eyes to how much need there is for children's services in Eugene and the Boys & Girls Club is such a great place for kids!
What is your official job title?
VP Commercial Relationship Manager
How would you describe your job to your mother?
That ship sailed a long time ago as my mom tells people I'm THE vice president of the bank, not one of many. I tell my kids I loan money to businesses to help them grow and make our community more successful.
Tell us about your personal passions, talents, and/or hobbies.
When I'm not at my kids sporting events, I like to golf and go to Duck games. I've also been told by my daughter that I'm the world's greatest Guess Who player which is a real resume builder.
What is something that people might be surprised to know about you?
Outside of ONE strawberry when I was 10, I didn't have a berry or an orange until I was 23.
Who inspired you when you were growing up, and why?
I was blessed with hard working parents who taught me to take pride in my work and the benefits of giving back to your community. My dad worked long hours, but always found time to get us kids outside to go hunting, biking, work on a jump shot and coach my Kidsports teams.
If you could go back and talk to your 12-year-old self, what would you say?
You're on pace to graduate high school at 6'6" and 160lbs. Maybe we should stop skipping that 7am weight class!
