With his keen eye, Joe makes sure production files are accurate and prepared for production. He has a sharp eye for common sense, too: “There’s a Puerto Rican old wives’ tale that if you deny a pregnant woman her food craving, you’ll get a sty in your eye. I don’t believe in old wives’ tales, but I don’t mess with that one.” Family is big with Joe. His two most prized possessions: a picture of his family and a Father’s Day letter his son wrote to him. He has exactly one hobby: working out. “It’s the only one I have time for.” Even then, family comes first. “I have to wake up before everyone else in my family just to fit that in.” He creeps around the house in his stocking feet so as not to wake up anyone else. What a guy. What a dad. When he was young, Joe thought he might pursue an alternate path: “My uncle was a mortician. He dressed really nice and always seemed to have a lot of money. I would tell people, ‘I’m going to be a mortician when I grow up.’ Then I found out what they did. Then design became my calling.” Undertaking’s loss is our gain.
