Joe Watson

Houston, Texas-based explorer, Joe Watson has explored a good chunk of the planet in between bouts of his career as a commercial developer. A lifelong sailor, scuba diver, airplane pilot, glider pilot, videographer and photographer, he can most often be found on his 42’ sailboat out in Galveston Bay or the Gulf of Mexico, participating in races or just enjoying the wind in the wires with friends and family.


While his taste for adventure might be the first things people notice about Joe, his heart lies in the numerous humanitarian projects he’s overseen, which includes developing eye surgery clinics in the remote Himalayas, developing a program to delivery clean, healthy milk to children and homes for children without parents.


As the expeditions Research Coordinator, Joe is responsible for developing partnerships between scientific researchers and expedition members which facilitates the gathering of data in regions not easily accessible for most researchers. Joe is Vice-Chairman of the Texas Chapter of the Explorers Club:
