I’m Joe, and thanks for checking out my page.
I was born in LA, but spent most of my life up to this point in NYC as a concert pianist and music director. I studied piano at The Juilliard School earning undergraduate and masters degrees there, staying there to serve on the faculty there for 4 awesome years. In addition, I’ve had the thrill of playing the piano for the Broadway productions of Disney’s NEWSIES, IF/THEN, and SOMETHING ROTTEN.
I like to write and explore music with creative people and instruments. I’ve been humbled to write for several features and short films in the last couple years, and have written music that can be heard on Apple TV’s SUPER LEAGUE: THE WAR FOR FOOTBALL and Telemundo’s GAME OF LIES. I cherish the collaborative aspect of filmmaking above all else.
Favorite directors: Christopher Nolan, Gareth Edwards, Jon Favreau, Dan Harmon, Neill Blomkamp Favorite composers: Christophe Beck, Henry Jackman, Michael Giacchino, Ludwig Göransson
When I’m not working, you can find me on my bike I built [I used to race competitively and Cali has some great roads], connecting with interesting people, and making pilgrimages to the local movie theatre. Oh, and rewatching the perfect work of art that is Community. #sixseasonsandamovie
