He grew up in Houston, went to college in New Orleans (it can be done) and now lives in New York City. As a kid, Joey began singing at church, school talent shows, and family functions. Never shy and always ready to "perform" for whoever would pay attention, he always wanted to be an actor. His dad passed along the family musical gene and with that Joey was offered a vocal scholarship to Loyola University in New Orleans after graduating from high school. After many choral concerts, vocal recitals, and Mardi Gras', Joey set his sights on Manhattan where he attended a musical theater academy and went on to pay his dues in regional theatre and bus and truck tours. Joey decided to focus more on his acting and landed a manager and then a commercial agent and finally booked his first VO gig as a rapper. His work spans from voice overs to commercials, to stage, to film, and television. Making his family oh so proud by playing every antagonist under the sun, he works and lives in NYC.
