Joseph here. I'm a Pacific Northwest boy turned New York City actor, writer, and life enthusiast. 


As a performer I appeared on the series finale of TV Land's Younger (created by Darren Star). On stage, I have been seen as the title role in Peter Pan, Leaf Coneybear in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Crutchie in Disney's Newsies, Huck Finn in Big River, George in The Wedding Singer, Laurie in Little Women (with original Broadway director Susan H. Schulman), Prentiss in Peter and the Starcatcher and some other awesome stuff.


My play, The Eulogy Approach, premiered Off-Broadway at Theatre Row in April 2023, marking my NYC playwrighting debut. I co-starred with Leana Rae Concepcion (Broadway's Merrily We Roll Along). The show was featured as a pick of the week on NY1 Onstage. Episodes of the digital mini-series I created called Nice Guys (Finish Last) are out now. In Spring of 2022, I began as the assistant book researcher for writer Kate Wetherhead and became an associate of The Dramatist Guild Foundation.  I directed the NYC premier of the one man show Farewell To The West by J. Savage (Bad Cinderella) and the Straw Hat Revue at the New London Barn Playhouse.

My love of new works led me to help create both the roles of Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade in the musical Something Wicked This Way Comes by Neil Bartram & Brian Hill. I first developed the show with them at the Penn State Nu Musicals Festival and joined the project again as it was workshopped at the Tony Award winning TheatreWorks Silicon Valley in Palo Alto, CA. As a part of this project I was featured on NPR’s The To Do List Live and in Bartram’s show New Songs For A New Year at Birdland Jazz Club.  I played Jeremy in the second production of the musical Be More Chill, working closely with Tony Award nominated composer Joe Iconis and director John Simpkins, working with them again in The Joe Iconis Christmas Extravaganza. I joined the cast of Austen's Pride: A New Musical of Pride and Prejudice by Lindsay Warren Baker & Amanda Jacobs in a new mounting of the show at ACT of Connecticut directed by Igor Goldin. I also contributed largely to the development of The Last Day by writing team Sarah Schlesinger and Grammy Award winner Mike Reid, recently reprising the role of Simon for a workshop at Two River Theater.

I was the National Association of Teachers of Singing winner for Musical Theatre in the Northwest Region. A regular in the NYC concert scene, I’ve been in numerous shows, debuting songs by Tony Award winning composer Charles Strouse, writer Zack Zadek, often collaborating with composer Billy Recce, and joining the 54 Sings series, celebrating pop music of Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Sara Bareilles and more. 


A member of Actors Equity Association, I am represented by Henderson Hogan Agency and am a proud graduate of Penn State's Musical Theatre Program. I live in Manhattan where, in addition to the arts, I pursue my passions for biking, hammocking, and cartooning.
