Former football player at UNLV, Joe Hawley caught the eye of the Atlanta Falcons and was drafted number 117 in the 4th round of the 2010 NFL draft. At just over 300 pounds of pure muscle he anchored offensive lines for the Falcons and my favorite, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Go Bucs!
In 2018, after donating most of his possessions to charity, Joe got himself a van and a rescue dog, a boxer he named freedom and has been crisscrossing the US racking up 20,947 miles, 24 states, 13 baseball stadiums, 6 national parks!
He’s an active advocate for wellness, nutrition, and movement, and dedicates his life to minimalism by living with less to experience more.
In a thought-provoking talk, Joe Hawley takes us through life in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers and his spontaneous decision to transition from football to travel vlogger, known for his adventures with the Man, Van, Dog Blog.
