GET TO KNOW JOE
Descending from a long line of Joe Liparis; many of us have nicknames, mine is J.R. By day I am a brand strategist who specializes in project management and creative production. By night, and on the weekend, I do lots of other stuff.
I'm a Veteran of the US Army, an ordained stand-up philosopher and an acknowledged Groucho Marxist who loves when that reference gets people angry about books they've never read. A grand-cousin to comedy legend Fred Allen, irreverent rebellion and slapstick silliness are in my bloodline. It used to get me in an immodest amount of trouble, in my youth.
In my downtime I lead excursions into the great wide yonder; camping, hiking and climbing with other veterans, fellow yogis and meditators of all experience levels. Adventure is out there, and it's good for your mental health.
