excited to engage within BIT and assist agencies with logical, intuitive

(6 months). He is slowly readjusting to life with an infant and loves the
noticeable lack of diapers at BIT. He met his wife during college and moved

In his free time, he enjoys camping, hiking, disc golfing,
snowboarding, and a good cup of coffee. He’s also one of those freakish people
who love snow and cold, so try not to hold it against him if you see him
smiling on the blustery days.
Take the time out of your day to introduce yourself and welcome Joe into this great organization!
