Joe helps ESA members tell their stories about insect science. As manager of communications, Joe leads several of the Society’s key external communication channels, including the Entomology Today blog, social media, and public relations. He also provides communications support for Science Policy and other ESA programs.
Trained in journalism, Joe originally had sportswriting in his scopes but found the mission-driven and service-oriented environment of nonprofit membership organizations much more engaging during nine years at the American Society of Association Executives. His role as a writer and editor for ASAE’s Associations Now magazine brought him face to face with the best and brightest ideas in association management, and now he brings that experience to his role in communications for ESA.
Joe was born in Philadelphia, grew up in Ohio, and earned his bachelor’s degree in journalism at Ohio University (2005). Today he works remotely for ESA from western Connecticut.
Favorite insect: Ticks (“I know, not an insect, and more of a morbid fascination, particularly living in New England.”)
