When Joe was 6 years old, he entertained his relatives on a picnic table impersonating Elvis in his back yard. Many years later he found himself in a position to once again perform on stage; he hit the ground running and hasn't looked back.
In his youth, Joe enjoyed memberships in glee clubs, singing groups and bands, not the least of which was the Basement Party band OxVendor. In school, he was landing parts in plays left and right, starring in musicals and dramas alike such as Oliver and Becket. The audience couldn’t get enough of Joe’s charismatic portrayal of Harold Hill in The Music Man.
He began his professional career early, acting in dinner theaters all around the Washington DC area. He starred in classics such as The King and I, Fiddler On the Roof, The Apple Tree, and toured as Charlie Brown in You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown. He also performed on New Year’s Eve at several venues singing ballads and show tunes.
Years later, Joe moved to New York City to seriously pursue a career in acting. He began working as an extra on many TV shows. He built an extensive resume that included TV, Films, Commercials, and Web series. He has also modeled for national catalogs. A notable starring role during this period was in the TV movie Who Killed Chandra Levy which aired on TLC. Joe portrayed Levy’s love interest, congressman Gary Condit. None of his jobs to date however, have been as much fun as his multiple featured extra appearances on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.
After 6 eventful years in NY, Joe decided to relocate to his home in South Florida. His very first audition was a success, and he was cast in a lead role as FBI agent Matt Walsh in the soon to be released feature film, Rescue Me. The film has even spawned a youtube spin-off based on his character.
With Rescue Me now in post production, Joe is working hard on many creative endeavors. He is especially focusing his energies as a writer on a new TV project and another film. He continues to audition for TV Commercials and film roles.
