Joe DeMello



Joe was born in Portugal and immigrated to the United States with his family when he was 10. He's always been an academic at heart. In fact, he still attends graduate school, as a doctoral student in the Ed.D. program at Northeastern University. However, most of his professional career has been in business. First in banking, then transitioning into public accounting. He is CPA with a Masters Degree in Taxation. He currently teaches Taxation part-time at Northeastern University's College of Professional Studies. Joe lives and works in the Providence, RI area. He enjoys reading, learning new languages, and just spending time at home - a historic house built in 1795.


MA from Rhode Island College (2013)
