Joe leads the ERS San Francisco Office, where he is building our capacity to bring transformational change in the West.

Prior to ERS, Joe was Vice President at the National Center on Time & Learning, where he led that organization’s School Design Group, a team of outstanding former school and district leaders working directly with urban schools and districts to redesign the school day in the context of expanded learning time for all students. Previously, he was a Senior Principal at the business strategy consulting firm The Parthenon Group. At Parthenon he was on the firm’s education practice leadership team and led strategy projects for organizations including urban school districts, state departments of education and governor’s offices, charter school management organizations, and foundations. He was also a Senior Consultant at Axia, Ltd., a strategy consulting firm in Boston. He started his career in education, where he was a teacher and administrator in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area for nine years.

Outside of work, Joe enjoys spending time with his wife and trying to keep up with his daughter. He also is a dedicated—if not particularly fast—cyclist, runner, and swimmer.
