Joe Renzler grew up in a tough, mob-controlled neighborhood in New York City, bordered by the bohemian art enclaves of SOHO and Greenwich Village. Expelled from prep school as a young teen, Joe then sang and played guitar for a while in local dive bars… eventually landing work as a technical illustrator with a N.A.S.A. contractor.
He parlayed that experience into a low-level position at a New York ad agency, from which he worked his way up to become an award-winning Creative Director at some of the most prestigious advertising networks in the world.
At the height of his success, Joe abandoned his lucrative career to pursue a deeper purpose in his life.
