About

img_0035_rev_webMy name is Joe Nolan and I’m originally from Brooklyn, NY. When I was five, my family and I moved to what we called The Country. We landed in Islip, NY, which is on Long Island, and moved into a house that was part of one of the hundreds of housing developments that were being built at that time — right around 1960. After graduating from high school, I went to college in Wisconsin, which was wonderful. My degree was in Industrial Technology, and I made my living representing various manufacturing companies until I retired a few years ago.

I’ve got a lot more spare time than I used to, which I spend writing and making documentaries. I’ve posted my most recent movie right here on the blog, which is about the Governor of New Jersey’s controversial cancellation of a huge Public Works. Project. Other of my movies include:

  • The Tuneful Trolley, which is about a Bubblegum Band from Long Island that nearly made it big in the music business. Proud that this movie was accepted into the 2021 Garden State Film Festival
  • Go Another, which is about my family’s involvement in Islip Town politics
  • The More Things Change — A Woodstock Memoir, which is about my experiences as an attendee of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair
  • My Prostate Cancer, which is about my personal experience with prostate cancer

I have  written a novel (The Wellspring Immortal) that lays out a unique basis for legends of immortality, and am at work on a second installment which will bring the story into current times.
