Joe began his career at The Lodge and over the past ten years has amassed an impressive discography for artists including David Bowie, Foo Fighters, The Weeknd, Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Run The Jewels, Vampire Weekend, Bon Jovi, Tiesto, Beach House, Garbage, Young Thug, Walk The Moon, Armin Van Buuren, Neutral Milk Hotel and many more.

In 1997, as a high school senior, Joe began producing hip hop and electronic music and went on to work with artists including 50 Cent, GZA (of the Wu Tang Clan) and Talib Kweli. He and a partner then founded an independent record label that secured a distribution deal with Caroline/EMI. He also licensed his original compositions to major film and TV clients including Fox, MTV and Showtime.

This diverse background and knowledge of music has attracted a wide range of mastering clients from Billboard chart toppers to up-and-coming indie acts.
