Welcome to Joe Wolfe Design, I'm Joe Wolfe!
Welcome to my portfolio! I am a web developer, graphic designer, photographer, project manager, and Ninja Warrior! I grew up in Lima, OH and I am currently residing in Mercer Island, WA. The purpose of this website is to show off my multiple talents and give you a taste of who I am as a person!
I have been working in the web professionally for the past years although beforehand I had been building websites for over a decade in my spare time. Back in the 90s when the web was just starting to bloom you could find me writing pure HTML using notepad posting random websites on free domain providers. As web technology grew so did I.
Things to note while looking around
If you are an employer or a rival developer giving my site a look to gauge my skills, I want you to take note that other than loading in jQuery I am not using any other libraries to handle any behaviors on this website. Every piece of functionality is handwritten from scratch. There is a hidden gem in this website, hopefully you can find it!
View My American Ninja Warrior Submission Video for 2015
One of my many dreams that I've had over the past few years is the opportunity to compete on the television show American Ninja Warrior. In 2014 I was able to realize that dream as I competed in the Dallas American Ninja Warrior regional qualifier. Unfortunately I failed on the third obstacle, which was well short of my goal.
My gimmick for the past two years for Ninja Warrior was to play the villain. I wanted to be like an over the top pro wrestler heel character. I could try to tell you that I'm not this big of a jerk in person, but I'll let you use your judgement if you ever get the chance to meet me!
In 2015 I was not selected to compete on America Ninja Warrior, I was told the video above rubbed some of the decison makers the wrong way. This was not my intention, it was meant to be satire and fun but I guess some people took it seriously. I will be retiring the villain gimmick going forward.
