Originally from Selden, N.Y. on Long Island, Joe Murgia moved from Los Angeles, where he worked as a camera operator on such shows as “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels” and “Wife Swap,” to Las Vegas in 2009 to work as the DP (main cameraman) on the History Channel’s hit show, “Pawn Stars.”
Now a freelance camera operator, he continues to shoot on various reality shows, including “90 Day Fiance” and his all time favorite gig, Vegas Golden Knights hockey.
After reading “Communion,” by Whitley Strieber in 1996, it sent him down a paranormal rabbit hole in which he now resides. Murgia runs a blog, www.ufojoe.net, where he focuses on the latest information about UFOs, AATIP, (the government’s secret UFO program) Tom DeLonge’s “To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science” and related paranormal subjects.
He’s a prolific user of Twitter and chronicler of interesting information. After studying UFOs for 23 years, he still doesn’t know what it all means…
