Joseph was raised in Whittier, California. His father was from California and his mother from New York. Growing up, Joseph really had a knack for integrating with many cultures as was his curiosity to understand people. He taught himself to play piano when he was nine and has been playing it at every opportunity since. He began singing at eight and dancing at seven yet was reluctant to musicals and acting up until he attended Fullerton College and graduated with a Theatre Arts Degree for acting. He enjoys long walks at night on the beach, overlooking the city at night, and writing short stories of action-thriller for fun.  Joseph currently attends Rio Hondo college and is working on his associate's degree in Architectural Engineering. "I love stories, creating them, being in them. It's a way to connect with people, to understand and be understood. You just always have to be careful to remember you have your own story too. Not one you imagined, or one you found, but the one you live. No matter what, those will always be the ones worth listening to," says Joseph. For Joseph, the most important things are to always keep God at the top, and always take time to reflect, but never forget to move forward. Joseph is a mentee under Silentnoise Productions as a Production Assistance. His duties have included assisting with auditions by feeding lines to talent and greeting talent. He will also be assisting in the position as Grip on the production Hard Town.
