Born in Illinois on September 22, 1955, Joe served in the Marines during the Vietnam War until he fell victim to a landmine which blew off both his legs. He was rescued by a fellow soldier (who was an Immortal) who subsequently died but then returned to life. Joe witnessed the resurrection and was later recruited by The Watchers.

Joe was the owner of a bookstore (Juniper Street Books) in Seacouver, WA and later a small bar in Paris (La Blues Bar). He plays electric guitar and has befriended Duncan MacLeod, a Immortal born in 1592 in the Highlands of Scotland.

To get around, Joe wears prosthetic limbs. He walks with the assistance of a cane.
