Joe has been playing with computer since the early 1980s with a Radio Shack Tandy TRS-80. After college in the late 90s/early 2000s he built his first custom PC and got into modding, overclocking and eventually extreme overclocking competing at Hwbot.org. Joe started writing around 2010 for Overclockers.com covering the latest news and reviews that include video cards, motherboards, storage and processors. In 2018, he went ‘pro’ writing for Anandtech.com covering news and motherboards. Eventually he landed at here at Tom’s Hardware where he wrote news, covered graphic card reviews and currently writes motherboard reviews. If you can’t find him benchmarking and gathering data, Joe can be found working on his website (Overclockers.com), supporting his two kids in athletics, hanging out with his wife catching up on Game of Thrones, watching sports (Go Browns/Guardians/Cavs/Buckeyes!), or playing PUBG on PC.
