  • Joe has ghostwritten two horror screenplays for a TV actress (but can't say who because of NDAs).
  • He's seen almost every Alfred Hitchcock film at least twice.
  • A comic book fanatic, Joe has more than 12,000 comic books at his parents' that his mom hasn't thrown out (yet).


Joe continues to let his music degree gather dust as he builds a career as an arts and entertainment writer. Prior to writing about pop culture history and interesting facts at Grunge, he wrote for National Elite Media's publications the LA Trend and the Bay Area Trend, covering local attractions and things to do in those respective areas. From 2014 to 2018, he managed the content for the pre-seed startup accelerator the Founder Institute, where he covered various topics related to entrepreneurship and the tech world. When not writing about pop culture for money, he spends his free time writing about pop culture for free on a blog nobody knows about. Like half the population of Los Angeles, Joe moved there to become a failed screenwriter, a hobby he is very good and experienced at.


Joe has a BA in Music from Santa Clara University, with an emphasis in guitar. He was also a copy editor for the school newspaper, the Santa Clara, for a year.
