Joe returned to Carolina as Coordinator of Outreach in 2019 after graduating in 2013 and spending a combined six years in admissions both at Carolina and elsewhere. Born into a Tar Heel family in Virginia, Joe has come to embrace the entire state of North Carolina, and not just UNC, as his home which he shares with his wife and son. He is earning his master’s degree studying the University’s and the state’s history. When it comes to North Carolina barbecue, Joe adamantly believes that vinegar-based is better than tomato-based, but tomato-based is still superior to what all the other states are making.
