Joe started playing drums when he was in 4th grade and living in Lake Orion, Michigan. Music was always a big part of his life. In first grade he got in trouble for humming and tapping on his desk during class. When his mother was called in and confronted about the situation, his teacher said "I think he hears music in his head". To which his mother appropriately responded, "Don't You??". From there he moved from tapping on his desk to a pair of chop sticks and just about anything he could bang on. After seeing this, Joe was given his first pair of actual drumsticks and his drumming journey officially began.
Joe explored many genres throughout the years. In school he was in Symphonic band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, and Pit Band. He also started exploring the world of rock and roll. This lead to other genres such as punk, ska, blues, funk, etc. He has spent much of his tutelage learning many different styles of music and crafting his ability to adapt to each genre. This has aided in making him a sought after drummer within his Los Angeles network.
Joe moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to pursue music full time. He currently resides in Redondo Beach, CA. He currently works with the following projects:
- Emad Alaeddin
- The Clicks
- Living Cover
- The Back Alley Barbers
