Joe Faraoni

I recall when I first started taking showers daily, maybe fifth grade, that I made it a regimented part of my morning to watch SportsCenter. Since then I’ve always been a part of sport in some capacity, participating, coaching, photographing. I was given the opportunity to represent ESPN’s Communications department visually since 2006 continuing my love of sports by working for the World Wide Leader. When not at work my wife and I are resident directors of an academic program, meaning we play mom and dad to seven high school boys. I hold education in the highest regard. I’m a Detroit Tigers diehard, a University of Michigan fan and an Eastern Michigan University alum.
