Joe Maize resides in Honolulu, Hawaii. Joe built his first sandsculpture July 11, 1976 and has been hooked ever since. "It's a hobby blown out of proportion." Since then, Joe has taken first (at least once) at all the major sandsculpting competitions; The World, International, US Open, Canadian Championship, etc., etc. Traveling the world is a great plus with sandsculpting, Australia, Europe, China, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, and all over the US. "Having a great time and getting paid for what you love to do, what more could you ask for?" And now sandsculpting at Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark "Guess what I'm going to be doing during my breaks?".
When not on the sandpile, Joe works for a nightclub in Waikiki, and also (during his "free time")? does "food design" for some of the major Hawaiian hotels.
