About Joseph 

At the age of eight, Joseph started working on anything he could get his hands on in his family’s construction repair shop. He became a verified car junky at 10, and his career officially began during junior high when he began servicing heavy construction equipment.
Joseph has earned a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, with honors, from the University of Missouri. Following college, he worked as a construction equipment designer and manufacturing engineer, but quickly realized he enjoyed working with clients in the repair shop more than spending time on a computer.
