North America Program Director
Born and raised in the Seattle area, Joe grew up exploring the Cascades. With an early mountaineering introduction with a climb of Mount Adams at 13 years old, he knew he was hooked. After graduating college at Washington State University, he dove head-first into the outdoor industry working at gear shops, climbing gyms, and running youth climbing programs before finally joining the Madness team. As the North America Program Director here at Mountain Madness, he loves helping folks find adventure through climbing. In his free time, you can find him exploring the Cascades, riding his dual sport, boating in the Puget Sound, and hanging out with his best friend Blue (Chief Barketing Officer here at MM).
