Joe helped bring my vision for Peppermint & Peony to life. He started by making my website, which is beautiful, but then went beyond that to support me in understanding exactly what my brand is. His support on yearly campaigns have been great too.

His IT knowledge is second to none and he is always willing to go above and beyond to assist. I have no reservations in stating that Joe can turn his hand to most tasks in a variety of environments and is an asset for any employer.
