Joe caught the acting bug at an early age. On holidays and at family gatherings, Joe was always organizing the children in a talent show or performance for the rest of the family. In junior and senior high, Joe put those skills on stage for the first time in The Fantasticks, Don’t Drink the Water as well as in musicals like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and The Wiz.

After a long stay in Chicago, Joe and his family moved to Flagstaff and Joe was determined to begin acting again. Here he found Theatrikos Theatre Company and was involved in the community productions of A Christmas Carol, Our Town, and Little Shop of Horrors to name a few.

Joe is currently balancing three jobs: as adjunct instructor at Coconino Community College, as a relief Chaplain at Flagstaff Medical Center and as the Education Director for Theatrikos where he oversees all aspects of youth programming, including TheatriKIDS. His son, AJ will be entering college this fall and his daughter Grace will be attending her first TheatriKIDS’ camp this summer!

Joe feels very blessed to be on the ultimate dramatic journey with his supportive family and faithful friends.
