Day job: President & CEO, Tanagram, Inc.

With a focus on bringing commercial sector values into the government contracting domain, Joseph continues to pursue research grants that also seed Tanagram’s intellectual properties and can “trickle down” to commercial sector needs. Joseph has 3 concurrent undergraduate degrees (the scenic route) from Western Michigan University in Broadcast Communications, Art, and Graphic Design. He is also a licensed private pilot in the United States of America. How he describes his job: “I help my customers build cutting edge technology solutions that (re)make them competitive in this new economy.”
