Hailing from Pennsylvania, Joe's father brought the family to Sacramento after Joe graduated high school. On arriving west-side, Joe studied carpentry...his first love, but soon he realized that a carpenter's life would take him away from his newfound roots. So the lathe was exchanged for the press, and Joe built a career here in Sactown.
For a while, father and son worked side-by-side running presses at Central Valley Press, then after 25 years when that shop closed, Joe came to TC. His career in printing now spans well over three decades and Joe is completely content in Sacramento (although his support for the Steelers cannot be shaken).
Accomplished in all aspects of bindery–cutting, folding, booklet making and UV coating make up the majority of Joe's day at TC, but he'll cheerfully take on anything, including acting as back-up delivery when required. Just like his colleagues, Joe thoroughly enjoys the variety of his work.
A keen fisherman in his spare-time, Joe loves to prepare and cook his own catch (and it's no surprise that his favorite dish is seafood!). At work or play, Joe trusts a steady hand and keen attention-to-detail to bring about a polished product.
Joe says of life at TC, “we all get along,” and he thrives on the atmosphere that only exists in this size of printing establishment. There's no drama, “just good people.” What a perfectly humble summation from a highly skilled, yet perfectly humble guy.
