Joe was born in 1987 in Southfield, Michigan. He grew up in nearby Farmington Hills and attended Walled Lake Western High School.
Following his graduation from high school, Joe managed multiple family-owned retail businesses in the metro Detroit area.
During this time, he was offered a job with a diamond wholesaler which at first he refused. His hesitancy revolved around the feeling of leaving the family businesses and for overall concern of his father. Following lengthy conversations with his father about the opportunity and assurances from him that the family businesses would be fine, Joe took the step forward into the diamond industry.
After a few years of tremendously hard work with his new employer, Joe saw an opportunity to revolutionize the diamond industry by providing the highest quality diamond jewelry at the most affordable prices. In order to support is aggressive vision for the future Joe elected to work with one of the largest diamond wholesalers in New York City. This relationship led to Joe receiving a world-class education in gemology that could not be learned in a gem lab or school. Generations of knowledge were passed on to him from the industry experts that he uses to this very day to deliver the best possible experience for his customers.
Joe harnessed his experiences from early positions in the diamond industry, the mentorship of industry expert HK Mallack in New York City, and the education he received while working with industry founders to establish Dash Diamonds in West Bloomfield, Michigan.
Joe attributes the following tenets as his keys to success for building Dash Diamonds into one of the most respected diamond wholesalers that offers the highest quality diamonds at the most affordable prices:

Listen to why value, quality, and service matter to Joe’s customers.
One day, a potential customer visited Dash Diamonds and inquired about a particular set of diamonds. Per company policy, Joe listened and then provided four different diamonds for comparison along with the GIA certifications for each.
Soon after his initial visit, the potential customer returned and demanded to purchase the diamonds he was originally shown by Joe…immediately.
This behavior sparked Joe’s curiosity and he subsequently learned that the now-customer had visited two other diamond wholesalers and very reputable retail jewelry store with the test results and price Joe had given him where he was offered $2,500 more than Joe’s price by the competition!
