Introducing Joseph Kowalsky, Show Director of the Photo X group of brands at Emerald and a 2022 UFI Next Generation Leader. Graduating from Muhlenberg College in 2012 majoring in theatre and business, this comical character was planning for a career in live events before even knowing it. During his time at Muhlenberg Joe held many leadership positions including Vice President of both Muhlenberg Class of 2012 and Inter Fraternal Council while also serving as President of Eta Chapter of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity.
Starting in the events industry seven years ago Joe expanded on his sales abilities and showed a knack for brand storytelling. Joining emerald in 2016 as an account executive on the photo portfolio of brands, Joe quickly rose through the ranks, showing a passion for business strategy and bringing communities together. Responsible for three live events each year spanning the photography industry and a dedicated media property for the wedding and portrait sector, Joe and his team aim to be the hub of community and education for visual storytellers.
A self-described festively plump red head from New Jersey, Joe resides in Jersey City with his gorgeous, soon to be wife Cate and an opinionated knucklehead of a dog named Freddie. When not reveling in event glory, Joe enjoys being an active runner, even more active eater, and rooting for the underdog of all underdog NFL teams, The Jacksonville Jaguars.
