Joe is a senior editor and the storage beat reporter for CRN. He keeps readers abreast of the latest storage and data life-cycle issues, including business continuity and disaster recovery, along with related services and software.

Joe has been with CRN since October 1997. Before that, he was chief editor of Taiwan-based CompuTrade International, where he learned to argue with his sales colleagues in Mandarin Chinese. His first introduction to CRN was when he was setting up CompuTrade. Someone handed him a copy and said to use it as a model.

Joe graduated from the University of Wisconsin at River Falls with a degree in computer science, where he had a key to the computer center so he could play Mansion and Empire all night.
