A Los Angeles native, Joe relocated to New York City to study acting at Pace University, graduating with a BFA in Music Theater. Being a young man who needs to do a little bit of everything - theater, film, music -
a little bit of everything is exactly what New York's got.
There are few things more important to Joe as diversity, representation, and reinvention.
A card-carrying homosexual Mexican-American, Joe is dedicated to telling stories that shine the spotlight on LGBTQ+ experiences and people of color.
Recently, Joe had the chance to take on the role of Crutchie at Arena Stage in director Molly Smith's interpretation of"Newsies!" A beloved Disney musical, under Smith's direction, the company leaned into the experiences of immigrant children, class disparity, and today's current children's crusades as young people demand to be heard across the world.
Outside of auditions, you can find Joe behind a microphone or seated at a piano, accompanying himself and others in concert. Joe's been lucky to play at Rockwood Music Hall, 54Below, the Green Room42, and the Duplex alongside his friends and collaborators.
