About Joe

He travels the country and the world as a working artist creating works that inspire, educate and change lives while also educating students who are pursuing a career in theatre.  Joe is an Assistant Professor of Theatre Arts at Ouachita Baptist University and currently resides in Arkansas with his wonderful wife, his amazing son and his awesome dog, Saban Bear.

About 20 years ago Joe found himself sitting in a Broadway theatre watching the longest running Broadway show, Phantom of the Opera.  As he sat there and watched this iconic show come to life he knew then that this is what he had to do for the rest of his life.  Fast forward 20 years or so and Joe is now a professional director, actor, singer and educator.  He has a Master of Fine Arts in Directing from the University of Southern Mississippi, is an Associate Member of the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, and a member of the Association for Theatre Movement Educators and has a true passion for the Arts.
