A Georgia boy born and raised, Joe started his restaurant career at Harbour Pointe Reastaurant on Lake Tobosofkee in his hometown of Macon, Ga. He has since worked almost every position a restaurant has to offer, from meat slicer to bartender in concepts from fast food to college bars.
He moved to Atlanta in 2016 to join the RedBeard team as a server at Gunshow and, later, Revival, where he is excited and proud to lead the service team and to continue to give Atlanta some of the best southern food this state has to offer.
