Joe thinks about cities, humanity and the future. He also thinks about cat gifs and food. He’s always liked writing – primarily as a means to hammer out inner conflicts into something recognizable – enough for me to find my way through. He believes that every person should be defined as a Human first, and any other definition second. He lives in Minnesota with his husband and dog.
