About me

Industry Consulting
Occupation CTO
Location Upper Arlington, OH, United States
Introduction Certifications: CSI, Tombow Technique Basics Joe’s mom started the family on crafting. As early as he can remember, his mom was crocheting. When she brought home a Brother knitting machine, he was fascinated and soon he was creating designs from Christening dresses to ski wear. He dabbled in macramé, string art and latch hooked rugs when they were hot in the 70’s. Now, in his mid-forties, Joe’s turned his eye to paper crafting. He loves detail and 3D work and paper piecing is his specialty. Joe’s work has appeared in Scrap & Stamp Arts and Just Steampunk! magazines. He’s filmed a segment of Crafting at the Spotted Canary with Joy Macdonell (airs on PBS Fall 2011) and has won Archiver’s One-of-a-Kind Wall Art contest (Ohio, August 2011). He’s on the Viva Las Vegastamps! and USArtQuest design teams. When he’s not designing paper art projects, he works as CTO at Delphia Consulting and is the 2012 Web Optimization Expert for the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA).
