Joseph was born and raised in the beautiful hills of upstate New York, and can be easily identified from a distance by his cacophonous laughter. He began his studies at The Draper Center for Dance Education in Rochester, New York and continued to receive his BFA at The Juilliard School under direction of Lawrence Rhodes, on tuition scholarship from New York City Dance Alliance. Joseph has had the opportunity to perform works of Jíri Kylián, Crystal Pite, Nacho Duato, Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, Arthur Pita, Sidra Bell, Kyle Abraham, Shannon Gillen, Twyla Tharp, and Camille A. Brown. 

Recently, he had the privilege to have traveled to Algeria as a cultural ambassador for the arts representing The United States in the International Modern Dance Festival. 

He has performed alongside Brian Brooks Moving Company at New York City Center’s Fall for Dance festival, and in Kate Weare’s residency at BAM Fisher Hall. Joseph has also been able to teach master classes at institutions such as Loyola Marymount University, Chapman University, Santa Monica College, Santa Rosa Junior College, and The Laguna Dance Festival. 

Joseph is now a member of the LA based contemporary dance company, BODYTRAFFIC.
