An Arizona native, Joe is thrilled to be in the valley after residing in Maine for over 18 years for where his military duty station brought him. He proudly served our country for nine plus years in the United States Marine Corps, achieving the rank of Sergeant. Stationed with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 1st Marines, on Camp Pendleton, CA; Joe is proud to be a Gulf War Veteran, earning the Combat Action Ribbon, Kuwait Liberation Medal, a Navy Commendation and numerous meritorious masts. Joe’s career was filled with several duty assignments: Rifleman, Combat Tactics Instructor, Anti-Terrorism Instructor, Small Arms Instructor, and Base Security Advisor. After nine and a half years, Joe was honorably discharged.
After his Marine Corps service, Joe went on to graduate from Southern New Hampshire University with a BS in Business Administration with a minor in Human Resources Management. He worked in Human Resources until 2013 when he changed careers to put his home improvement skills and interests to good use. Joe was in store management for both Lowe’s and Sherwin Williams. He has had the pleasure of helping everyone from homeowners to contractors build, remodel or repair their homes, providing expertise and guidance along the way. After spending several years in retail management, Joe decided to put his skills in home improvement and business to better use.
After moving back home to Arizona, Joe attended the Arizona School of Real Estate and Business. In 2019, he was licensed as a home inspector and started Foundation Up Home Services. Using his business knowledge, home improvement skills, and military discipline, he has developed a business model that puts customers first and gives back to his military brothers and sisters.
In his spare time, you will find Joe in front of his computer playing video games or in his garage building wood projects or working on remodeling projects.
