"Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable."
Growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, Joe attended John Moran’s auctions at the side of his father who worked for Moran’s at the time. After graduating high school, Joe attended Mount San Antonio College. He found his way back to JMA in 2013, joining the team as an Art Handler. His daily responsibilities include packing, pickup, and delivery of auction property, photography department support, auction setup, and warehouse and facilities management. His favorite calls are those that require a road trip and a wide-open road.
In the course of his employment with Moran’s, Joe has picked up a passion for Mid-Century Modern design (his favorite designers being Charles and Ray Eames). However, nothing excites him more than fly fishing a big river.
