Outside the Office

Joseph’s background still has him exploring and studying local history and communities.

Joseph grew up living up and down the East Coast – from Philadelphia to Georgia – with stints inland and overseas. Now that he calls Dallas home, he enjoys exploring the different neighborhoods in and around Dallas, and going for long runs on the Katy Trail and in White Rock Lake Park. And he’s an eager student of Texas history. Joseph also cheers on teams from former hometowns: the Georgia Bulldogs and Philadelphia Eagles.
