I'm a professional copywriter, network marketer and a critical care health care professional. I've been writing now for over 35 years and have maintained a presence on the web since it's inception. I'm currently heading into nearly
400 websites as
of this web page is being formulated.
I write and create websites on any and all topics that attracts my interest.
Building websites is a hobby I enjoy doing when I have the time. Plus,
the revenue from the websites
are not bad for a hobby.
You can get more information regarding my works over the past few decades at a new website I'm currently bringing up called
Hawaiian Joe Publishing. It's somewhat like a sitemap,
that's subdivided into 35 different sections, that will
eventually be a directory to all my websites and works throughout the
the past years. I try to add to it daily in some section. Just be patient with me for awhile - I'll get it all updated as time permits
over the next few months.
I sincerely hope you will find some real value that helps you with your interest
as you surf any of my sites that you're currently seeking information on.

I also work with local communities in

I was born in Southwest Virginia in
January 1955. I often tell people jocularly that I started
my traveling career at a very early age when my very first
traveling adventure took place at age 6 (1961) and landed me
in Brooklyn, New York to live with my mother.
There, I attend Public School 140 for a
couple of years before returning back to Virginia to live
with my Grandmother who pasted in 1993. The most salient
thing I remember about PS 140 was November 22, 1963. If you
don't know what happened that day, then it's best to just
let history be.
Many of my summers were spent with my Aunt
& Uncle, on his mothers side, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. My
uncle was a Union Organizer that required him to travel
extensively throughout the Southeastern United States and I use to tag along to
see new places and meet new faces.
Many of my uncles clients were
nurses that I remember. I still recall vividly those days when we would
drive for over 400 miles or more, have a one-hour meeting in
some clinic, and then start the return trip
back toward Chattanooga.
In the late 1960's I began my high school
years at R. B. Worthy High School in Saltville, Virginia. I
mostly favored math and science with most of my free time
spent in the local Pool Hall in Saltville learning the art
Another Aunt on
fathers side was also a Registered Nurse and I remember looking
up to her many times because she always knew what to do when
someone became ill.
Toward the end of my high school years, I
headed back to Brooklyn again to work as an Assistant
Manager of an Automotive Supply Warehouse. My Step Father, Frank
(Hot Dogs) Germano (a.k.a. Porky's Germano in the boxing
arena to figures such Jake LaMata,
Rocky Marciano and
others) got me the Assistant Manager's job through some
Italian connections. Anyone interested can get a rare
glimpse of Frank (Hotdogs) Germano in this book by clicking
his passing a few years ago, it was reported to me that
Frankie was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame at a new
museum at Coney Island, New York.
I resided in
Brooklyn, New York until I was 21 at which time I returned to
Virginia for a few months before entering the United Stated
Air Force about a year after my son Chad was born. My son
Kevin was born at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North
Carolina after I entered the Air Force.
Immediately upon entering the Air Force, I
returned back to school at nights and on weekends taking
classes in the science
field again with courses in biology, chemistry, math, and a new
thing that was hitting the scene in the 1970's - computer science.
However, at the
time I was directing his attention mostly toward the medical
Call it luck, fait, or whatever....but,
somehow the United States Air Force placed me into the
Information Systems field and I starting working on
mainframes and writing training programs and training personnel
in a formal classroom environment starting at
base level while assigned to Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, North
Very quickly I was pulled into the
Strategic Air Command at Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha,
Nebraska for three years to work with a new computer system
that required a
top secret clearance.
Still going to school nearly every night
pursuing degrees, and working full-time, I was presented
the privilege of working with some of the best systems
personnel in the world and was assigned to Headquarters Air
Force Military Personnel Center at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas for over four years
from 1982 through 1986.
In 1985 I received my
first degree from the Community College of the Air Force in
Resource Management and continued to plug along with my educational endeavors
until I received my bachelors from Valdosta State College
while assigned to Moody AFB, Georgia in 1988.
After spending over 4 years at Randolph
headed to Osan Air Base Korea for a year to manage a computer system
While assigned at Osan Air Base I recall working some very rough
days and I took a year off from school during
that period of time from July 1986 through July 1987.
From 1987 to the later part of 1989 the
Tactical Air Command at Langley had drafted me into Moody Air Force Base,
Georgia to test a new $650 million dollar system that the Air
Force was planning on implementing world-wide. Our team
working on this enormous project later received a
Presidential endorsement from our 41st President George H.
I continued studies further for a
Masters degree in Management. After departing Georgia, I was assigned to
Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho to bring up the system I had
been testing and debugging at Moody Air Force Base. While assigned at Mountain Home
was afforded the opportunity to go to school full-time to
seek my Masters degree. In April 1991, I received my Masters Business
Administration (MBA) in Management from Golden Gate
University in San Francisco, California.
In July 1992 I departed the Air Force with
over sixteen years active duty time. I took a break for a few months
and started back to school this time directly into a Nursing
Program that I had been trying to accomplish for over two
It was very difficult during my Air Force career
to concentrate within the medical field simply because most
educational programs offered at most Air Force Bases were all business
and management type courses.
After obtaining my degree in Nursing I
started working directly on a Cardiothoracic Surgery Unit
doing open hearts and working with various types of cardiac
patients to include Coronary Artery By-Pass Grafts (CABG's), catheterizations
and robotic surgery patients.
At that time I was a staff member with a
major hospital in Southwest Virginia which was over 150 miles away from
home. The hospital would
put me up in a nearby hotel from Friday - Monday every
weekend. After a year of living in a hotel, it became very
old very quickly. I attempted several times to negotiate an apartment or
but for some technical reason, the hospital refused to do it
- which never made sense to me whatsoever. They would pay
for a hotel every weekend, but would not pay for an
apartment or permanent housing which would have been considerably cheaper.
Nevertheless, after a year I started some travel
nursing adventures. I worked at several hospitals in South
Carolina working with Cardiac and Renal patients. Landed in
Hawaii working with Cardiac patients and Renal transplant
patients. Back to a hospital in North Carolina in
Critical Care Services. From there I landed at Duke
University for nearly two years doing Heart and Lung
Transplants in addition to the regular open hearts and
Before leaving Duke University I did work
the pulmonary floor for several months with ventilators and
patients requiring continuous pulmonary infusions for their illnesses. Still keeping
up with school I received an online Masters Of Science in
Nursing from Concordia College in 2004.
After leaving Duke University itself, I
moved out the front door and across the street to the Durham
Veterans Affairs Medical Center. There I was assigned as
Charge Nurse for a Medical Surgery Ward. It was basically a
catch all floor of all kinds of surgery's. Mostly
orthopedics, but ever now and then I would catch my
favorite patients which were
Cardiac in nature.
The nice thing about working for the
Veterans Affairs in Durham was that I was working with
some of the same
doctors I worked with at Duke. In addition,
the VA gave me back those 16+ years
Air Force time for Federal retirement purposes with the US Federal Government.
After working for the Veterans
Administration for about a year in Durham, I transferred to
the Department Of Defense in Hawaii. I'm currently assigned to the Critical Care
Services Area and perform as Charge Nurse.
I also moonlight for private individuals
and hospitals throughout the Island of O'ahu. A lot of times
when I moonlight I work various Emergency Departments at
local hospitals. If I'm not in an ED somewhere, then I'll be monitoring Cardiac
patients somewhere either within an Intensive Care Unit or
I also hire myself out to private
individuals for those who want to pay the price. I value my
time at $400 per hour for medical services and get $300 per hour for my
professional copywriting and consulting services.
I will, and do travel for patients and or
families to meet private needs. My clients pay all expenses in advance, including travel and lodging which I
book myself because I'm also a
Professional Travel Consultant. My
healthcare time is hired out at $400 per hour
but never less than $2400 per day. I mostly only
consider working nights from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM. For more
