Made in NY PA training campaign

Joseph was born in in 1980, in Harlem, New York. As a kid his family moved around to a variety of different neighborhoods all over the City, but every Sunday, no matter where they lived, they would have family day at the movies. For Joe, “It was like a home away from home. As soon as they dimmed the lights in the theatre, I was in that world on the screen. I was living in it, vicariously through the main character. My world didn’t exist for two hours. It was then that I realized that I had a passion for storytelling.”

Today, Joe helps to create those stories on the big screen and television as a key production assistant, working on noted projects, including Last Call Food Brawl on Destination America, Ink Masters on Spike TV and Worst Cooks in America on the Food Network. Being a part of the “Made in NY” PA Training Program was a huge part of making Joe’s career a reality.
