Joe is hard working and dedicated. He is driven to achieve and committed to developing his own strengths and talents. As a reserved and respectful individual, he is an excellent role model to others. His cheeky grin gives a small insight into his comical and playful manner, while his calm demeanour reassures others when in his presence. Having been born and raised in the East End of London, Joe still finds himself fully committed to giving back to his local community.
Born and raised in the east end of London, Joe began playing basketball in secondary school at the age of 14. Joe began his National League career at the East London Royals playing under Humphrey Long and the late Chris Morgan. From the ages of 16-18, he represented England internationally. He later captained the Under-20 Great Britain team at the European Championship, while attending Barking Abbey Basketball Academy. Joe then spent the next five years studying and playing college basketball in the United States of America, at Seminole State College and South Carolina State University before returning to the U.K to begin his professional career.
