James is the visionary and host extraordinaire behind Pumpkins After Dark. He has worked in the marketing industry for 25 years. In 2019, he directed his passion and skills towards developing Pumpkins After Dark. Self appointed as “Chief Pumpkineer”, he’s made television appearances on City TV, Breakfast Television and Global News. You can often find him greeting guests in his famous pumpkin suit!
There’s something about the fall season that inspires Joe creatively and he is passionate about pumpkins. Many years ago he started carving pumpkins for fun, and as the years went by, he experimented with carving them like sculptures. He quickly learned he had a knack for carving Jack-o-lanterns and always looks forward to seeing the expressions on people’s faces, especially kids, when they see one of his carvings. He never thought his pumpkin carving experiments would lead to anything, yet here he is, the Pumpkins After Dark Creative Director.
