Joe was a successful rower and won a Gold Medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. He was later recommended as a grinder, and he joined Emirates Team New Zealand in 2015. With the ground-breaking design of the Kiwi AC50, Joe had to transition to a position as a Cyclor for the 35th America's Cup in Bermuda. Now, his second America's Cup campaign sees him "back on the handles" again.

Joe is a passionate firefighter outside of Emirates Team New Zealand.
