Joe worked for the Fish Market Restaurants for 11 years in California and Arizona before he moved to Seattle in 2000. He has been a general manager at Chandler's Crabhouse, Anthony's Homeport in Kirkland, and now continues to thrive in this position at Hale's Pub.
While Joe has definitely enjoyed his years in seafood restaurants, he is very happy to be working at Hale's. This is because he finds that great craft beer makes for excellent food/beer pairings; Joe finds this one of the most enjoyable aspects of his job.
In addition to functioning as the brewpub manager, Joe also assists in booking entertainment for the adjoined Palladium. He finds this to be great fun and considers that this is what makes his career unique amongst restaurant manager positions.
In his free time, Joe has enjoyed singing with local choir Seattle Pro Musica.
