From an early age, Joey was drawn to the world of film and acting, and he began making his own movies on his family’s home video recorder. He soon realized that he wanted to be in front of the camera, and began studying at his town’s local theater company at just six years old.
Joey was a driven and disciplined child, and he stayed busy throughout the year with football, baseball, basketball, and even boxing, which he was nationally ranked in. Despite his busy schedule, he continued to study and work on his acting craft, and did various plays in theater as he grew up.

He worked on various commercials and continued to study with the best teachers and mentors in Los Angeles to continue improving his craft. Joey’s hard work paid off, and he was set to work alongside Bill Paxton, Ashley Judd, and Ty Simpkins in the feature film “Life Briefly.” Unfortunately, the project was put on hold due to the untimely passing of the film’s director in late 2016.
