Joe went on to work for one of the world’s top sportswear companies, Nike, in an odd turn of events. He has acquired over 166k Instagram followers. His agency, Loveblood Creative, confirmed the relationship in a written statement last year. “We are extremely pleased to announce that Joe is now a member of the Nike Family,” it stated.
“It is an unusual connection that puts Joe’s talent and appreciation of sport together to motivate others to have enjoyment and do what they love.” “Joe is very excited to be joining the Nike Family,” stated Joe’s father, Gregory Whale.
