Joseph Carder

Joseph Carder started his career just out of college working as a graphic designer in the tiny University town of Columbia, Missouri in 1990. After a tour in the US Air Force, providing manning tactical weather stations, Joe rejoined the civilian world just as the Dot-Com wave was peaking in San Francisco. By combining his marketing and graphic design skills with HTML, JavaScript and PHP coding proficiency, Joe eventually landed as a web developer at Silicon Valley security giant McAfee.

Eventually, ensnared by the desolate beauty of the California desert, Joseph was drawn to the Joshua Tree and the Morongo Basin where he added music and video production to his repertoire of skills.

Joe likes dinosaurs and trains and wants to be an astronaut when he grows up.
