Joseph Miller is a retired architect and native New Yorker.  After receiving his Masters of Architecture from Tulane University in New Orleans, he accepted a position with Perez Architects as a member of the design team on the Denver International Airport project.  Joe made the move to Dever in 1988 with all his belongings fitting in his Volkswagen Rabbit. In 1999 he started his own architecture firm, JoeArchitect, which specializes in the design of medical and dental facilities across North America.


In an attempt to satisfy an “acting bug” that bit him way back in 5th grade, Joe took part in a summer stock production of Cyrano De Bergerac. While it did not quell that particular urge, Joe did meet his future wife Lynn who was the stage manager on that very same production.  They welcomed their son Louis in 1999. 


Joe was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2011. Through proper exercise and medication, he was able to continue working for another eight years before retiring from professional practice. Joe served as the Parkinson’s Pointe’s board chairman for the first three years of their existence before stepping down.  Today he spends his time as a mentor for the Pathfinders program, helping the newly diagnosed and their care partners make the transition to a world that includes Parkinson’s Disease.  While PD has certainly disrupted life as Joe and Lynn knew it, it has not kept them from living full and exciting lives.
