About Joe

Photo by Thea DwelleA Toledo born, Houston-based Web designer and developer by day, Joe Power spends his nights cooking, bowling and preparing for a Zombie Apocalypse. A misspent youth and failed attempt at Rock and Roll superstardom left him with little choice but to turn to a life of drink. Fueled by his passion for wine and food he created Another Wine Blog, where he serves as Editor, Publisher and All-Around Opinionated Bastard with a penchant for sharing said opinions with a sharp wit and a fierce attitude in a style reminiscent of his creative heroes: Lester Bangs, Hunter Thompson, The Ramones, Lou Reed and Lenny Bruce.
