Joey is a chemical engineer who loves to meet new people and to be outdoors.
What do you do when you're not traveling?
I love to be outdoors. So, I rock climb a lot, I run, I swim, pretty much anything I can do to be outside, be engaging with people and just living life to the fullest.
What is your superpower?
Just being very genuine with people and getting to know them in a deeper sense than the just in passing.
What is your spirit vegetable?
I would think a cucumber. I just think they're very versatile. You can make them into pickles, they spice up or sweeten everything.
How do you make new friends?
I make new friends through sharing experiences with them.
What will be your part in the travel group?
My part would be the motivator to keep everybody going, if we have a rough day or if we run into a struggle just keeping everybody light and positive.
What or who will you miss during the 100 days?
I'm gonna miss just my life here in Tampa but that's part of it. I have a really strong support group here and I'm loving what I'm doing but ready to take on another challenge.
I expect a friend to...
Have a positive influence on me and make my life a little bit better in whatever way they can whether they know they are doing so or not.
I can't stand it when...
they say the ice cream machine is broken when its clearly not they just don't want to clean it.
I spend an unreasonable amount of money on...
tea and sushi. I could live solely off boba and sushi rolls. Its my guilty pleasure I take part sometimes multiple times a week.
