Inspiring Stories:  A Man With a Vision

Meet Joe Semkow:
A true Florida native, Joe resides in the beautiful coastal town of Vero Beach. Joe is in our spotlight today because Joe’s desire to help and make a difference in other’s lives is apparent in everything he does. 

Most recently, Joe learned of the story about Noah, a 5 year old boy with cystic fibrosis. Noah was battling COVID-19 in a California hospital for months. In hopes of bringing joy to Noah, Joe sent one of his photographs to the hospital so he would have something to brighten up his room and offer a glimpse of the outdoors. Joe did not just stop there. When Noah was released from the hospital, Joe caught wind that he would need to be transported around with medical equipment and sprung into action to raise money for a heavy duty cart named the Wonderfold Wagon that would allow his parents to easily transport Noah. This was one of the many ways Joe inspires kindness and inspiration to others. 

Joe is currently a freelance photographer with a passion for mother nature and all its wonders. His photos have graced the covers of various publications and his work is utilized throughout commercial and product marketing all over the country.

Abaco Polarized would like to recognize Joe and his efforts to make the world a better place. We see you, Joe!
