Joey Odom


Joey recently relocated to Knoxville, TN from Atlanta with his wife and two kids. Prior to founding Aro, Joey was an executive in commercial real estate, and like Heath, realized his phone was distracting him from the most important thing in life - his family.


He's famous for saying, "When you change your relationship with your phone, you change your relationship with everyone around you, including yourself."


Joey is the heart behind Aro, and we can't call it a work day if he hasn't cried or made someone else cry.
