About the Author

Joe Lane was born in Tampa, Florida in the early 1960s. He attended but did not graduate from Florida State University, where he says he closely resembled John Belushi�s sidekick D-Day in the movie Animal House. In the 1980s, he attended Yale University and Middlebury College Summer Language School, where he was a self-described �study animal� and claimed to love every minute of it.

Joe is now a modern renaissance man. A consultant to businesses for many years, he has often spoken at regional and national conventions. As CNBC noted in a piece on him and his Shooting 78 Golf School, where many of his students were Wall Streeters, Joe developed formidable marketing and teaching skills.

Joe has continued to take his love of aviation�he�s been flying planes since 1968�to the next level. An instrument-rated private pilot, he is still working to earn a commercial pilot ticket. He and his wife�s encounter with a developing thunder cell while flying over New Jersey convinced him that one can never know too much about an airplane, or the weather.

Joe is also a sailor. A sailboat captain in the late 1970s, he ran charters in the Chesapeake Bay for five years.

Joe has lived all across the globe, from Tampa, Florida, to the Baltimore-Washington area, to Connecticut, and most recently in China. He returned to China in 2006, and for most of the past eight years, lived in Zhaoqing City in the Guangdong Province of China, with his wife and partner of seventeen years, Barbara. They developed and are now adding new sotores to the wood-fired pizza restuarant Spango they started in Zhaoqing, in Guangdong Province.

In the late summer of 2013, in order to find out how Americans were financially faring after the Great Recession of 2008, and what the country should do to prevent a recurrence, Joe, his wife, and their dog went on a motorcycle tour of 22 small U.S. towns. They called it �The Aftershock Tour.�
