Joe is a worksite safety entrepreneur. He started his career as a mariner and quickly moved up the ranks to become Chief Mate at McDermott International. He saw an entrepreneurial opportunity to help prevent workplace incidents and decided to launch his own startup.

He co-founded Opslock which builds tools to save lives at work.

They raised financing from world class investors and are growing quickly.
