Joe is a descendant of the Karajarri people of the West Kimberley.  Extensive personal and vocational experiences in areas of Aboriginal arts and media, as a public servant (with the now-defunct ATSIC/ATSIS), and in Aboriginal cultural tourism provides him with invaluable understanding and knowledge of Indigenous people and affairs in the Kimberley.

Joe attained a Bachelor of Business degree from The University of Notre Dame Australia, graduating in 2000.  Since graduation, he has continued his involvement at the University both as a guest lecturer and by joining the Notre Dame Broome Council in 2007 to encourage and consider future directions for Indigenous people in higher education.

Joe's position is funded by the Dermot Mary Roden Fellowship, established by the Cullity family in memory of the late Dr Dermot Mary Roden who, in the course of his distinguished medical career, was passionately devoted to improved eye health for people in the Kimberley.
