Joe Moorman, owner
Before starting Mosaic Art Supply, Joe worked on a wide variety of projects in business software, manufacturing and research & development. After the dot-com collapse, Joe consolidated North American operations and hosting for the French software firm iMediation, and then went on to help develop the database interface for what eventually became IBM’s recommended software for inventory management. Before software, Joe worked as a manufacturing engineer for Herman Miller, Inc.

Joe holds several language and OS certifications, including Java, Solaris, and Cisco routers.
