Joe Sanchez grew up in Austin and has lived in Dove Springs for 6 years. Even as a kid, he had a lot of friends in Dove Springs and always loved the neighborhood. Joe likes working with his hands, whether he’s making a chair, a bench, or a play park for his kids Alexis, Jeremiah, and Annalicia. They performed in Dove Springs Swims with Joe and his mother Theresa. “My kids are little fishes,” Joe says. “They love the water. They love it more cause they know I’ll take them to the pool — 90% chance I will not say no.”
