Joe loves “all things pertaining to the home”. His personal passion is home restoration, having accomplished significant restorative improvements to his 1920s Tudor-style home including a variety of energy efficiency upgrades.

foster, fund raiser and advocate. You’re likely to find him being walked by his three dogs around Austin's parks, trails and lakes.
PATRICK KIKER : HSA BRAND + MARKETING

In his spare time you’ll often find Patrick in the garden as he loves landscaping of all forms. A self-proclaimed "water geek gardener," he’s installed multiple infinity fountains and designed and built 1,000+ gallon koi ponds complete with water falls for families of water critters of various forms. His favorite time of year in Texas is fall when he harvests his basil garden to make homemade pesto for tasty holiday entertaining.

With six trips to Italy under his belt (and a whole lotta pasta), he created and manages an online community at ForTheLoveOfItaly.com to help connect folks with his two favorite lands of Texas and Italy. His foodie site BettysCookNook.com celebrates the joys of his Mother's cooking with most dishes hailing from the 1950s-1970s; an era Patrick believes was a unique time when the “regularity” of the home-cooked family dinner yielded simple pleasures through creating, sharing and bonding.
