Joe is a screenwriter, film maker, and actor/comedian who is currently an undergraduate student at Penn State University. He is double majoring in Film/Video Production and Communication Arts & Sciences. He is from Philadelphia, PA and has lived in the surrounding area throughout his life.
Since childhood, Joe has enjoyed writing stories and comedic screenplays, but it wasn’t until high school that he had the opportunity to produce his writing. Along with two close friends, Joe created the short sketch comedy series “9th Period” through Cheltenham High School’s television production program. It was the first narrative based program the department produced. The short 15 minute series aired on the local government access station through Montgomery County, PA.
In his Junior year at Penn State, Joe took his experience from high school to create “The Valley”, a (approximate) 25 minute sketch comedy mini-series. The cast and crew featured other Penn State Film students, as well as other students who enjoyed acting, writing, and more. The team produced 4 episodes a semester, which aired on the campus television station, as well as posted on YouTube. Joe served as the show’s Executive Producer and worked in all aspects of the production including writing, directing, acting, and editing.
Joe is also an on air personality and play-by-play announcer for Penn State ComRadio. He has called games for teams including Penn State Women’s Volley Ball, Penn State Men’s Baseball, and even the St. Louis Cardinals Single A Affiliate State College Spikes baseball club.
Following graduation, Joe plans to pursue his career goal of becoming a sitcom writer and actor. He is also looking to work in production and editing. Joe has a mother and father, Joanne and David, and a sister Courtney who is a graphic designer.
