Joe was born and raised in Gisborne and was a partner at Burnard Bull & Co from 1984 until 2019 when it merged with Woodward Chrisp.

Joe is employed as a consultant with Woodward Chrisp and specialises in property transactions, commercial, company and partnership work, estates, estate planning and elder law.

Joe serves on Historic Places Tairawhiti as a committee member. He served on the committee of the Gisborne Chamber of Commerce for 28 years and was a trustee of the Eastland Community Trust for seven years. He was also a trustee of Te Ha 1769 Sestercentennial Trust. He is also past president of the Gisborne Law Society and is solicitor for a number of community organisations.

His past experiences have shown him what the accumulation and growth of capital can mean for the Gisborne district over time and therefore sees The Sunrise Foundation as an effective way to accumulate philanthropic contributions into one charitable foundation, for the betterment of the region.

Joe has been actively involved in a number of local drama productions and is interested in yachting, snow skiing and history.
