Speaker: Joseph Hession, UMass Amherst
Joe Hession was born, raised, educated, degreed, hired, married, enshacked, and thrice cloned right here in Western Massachusetts. And although he loves travelling (and photographing said destinations), some kind of gravitational field keeps drawing him back to the Pioneer Valley. He loves writing (especially poetry), karate, and chess, and all the more so when done simultaneously. He also enjoys directing the web and reporting groups for Administration and Finance IT at the University of Massachusetts.
