Joe Hachem Biography

Joe Hachem

Joe Hachem was born in 1966 in Lebanon and lived there until he was just six years old which is when his family moved to Australia. Joe lived in Australia for most of his life and still lives there now as he resides in Melbourne. You may have noticed that he has an Australian accent when he talks and this is because he grew up there and not Lebanon which is where he was born. Hachem graduated from school and then he started working as a chiropractor. After working as a chiropractor Joe needed to retire due to a blood disorder which is when he started working on his poker game.
