From an early age, Joe has been fascinated with technology, cobbling together computers from spare parts dug out of the trash in middle school. Joe went on to receive a bachelor’s degree in interdisciplinary sciences and a master’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. While working on his master’s, he served as the jack-of-all-trades Director of Technology at a small startup in the Capital District area before joining Google's Information Technology Residency Program in 2011. Two years later, Joe moved into a Corporate Operations Engineer role at Google’s Zurich office. For the last three years, he has been teaching security courses to his global team, in addition to keeping Googlers productive.
