Joe enjoys the culture around the UFO phenomenon. It is interesting to see how far it has come in regards to Hollywood and comicon type hype. Joe has stated that he enjoyed exploring the UFO phenomenon with his brother Nathan over the years and it has really helped him form a deeper connection with the Desert Southwest.
He loves the mysterious aspect of it and loves the hunt for clues. He states; “I believe that we are one of countless worlds that swirl about in our vast universe. I know we are not alone. I have not experienced a phenomenon first hand per-se, but I do believe in life existing elsewhere.”
Joseph chose to start the UFO Fest with his brother, Nate because it was fun. It is exciting to meet new people and generate interest in something that has remained so taboo. His goal for the fest is to grow it to be “family friendly” and incorporate a comicon experience but with the real truth that we are not alone.
Joe currently reside in Cedar City with a wife and five children.
