Joe Rinaldi is Happy Cog’s Business Development Director. He is a relationship manager with a background in design, a passion for user centered solutions, and a lifelong dedication to community development. His professional background spans interactive marketing, recruiting, freelance illustration, teaching, and user experience consulting.

Online, Joe frequents Twitter and Facebook. In real life, Joe enjoys spending time with his family, reading, going to the movies, drawing, his dad’s Phillies Sunday ticket plan, and, when no one is looking, comics.
