Joseph was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Coming from a family of musicians and singers, he was exposed to the sound of Salsa, Mambo and Rumba from his early childhood years. His father was a percussionist in several Latin bands and his mother was a singer. Seeing his parents perform sparked his interest as a young teenager to follow in their footsteps. During his high school years, Joseph decided to explore the art of music as he was scouted and then drafted into the high school Latin/Jazz band. Soon enough, he was found singing and performing in various talent shows in school and could always be found dancing in the streets battling other dancers. By the age of 21, he took his dancing skills to the most popular clubs in New York City, break dancing and pop locking to the sounds of house music, free style and rap of the 80’s & 90’s. This indeed has given him all the inspiration and fire that is reflected in his dancing today.
