beatboxing

Since 7th grade, Joe has been doing weird things with his voice. He called it beatboxing. The SoCal VoCals called it vocal percussion. In 2008, he led the group as President to their first ever ICCA title (the real-life competition from Pitch Perfect; the VoCals have now won a record 5 times). He later performed with a handful of the group's alumni on NBC's The Sing Off.

unicycling

Thank you, Joe's mom, for buying him one. Thank you, garage wall, for holding him while he learned. Thank you, large set of steps at college, for teaching him not to go down large sets of steps. Joe unicycled (with a broken wrist) in a T-Mobile commercial with Shakira for the 2014 World Cup.

juggling / magic

Joe's brother Jim taught him to juggle as a kid, but it wasn't until college that Joe thought it would be awesome to juggle flaming torches. Somehow, he hasn't burned himself... yet. In 9th grade, he perfected the art of average magic with friend Colin Duffy. This developed into a nice b-job as Joe used these talents to perform at outrageous events ranging from a 4-year-old's birthday party to a 5-year-old's birthday party.

fight choreography

Joe was one of the youngest members ever to be inducted into the Society of American Fight Directors when he trained extensively in quarterstaff, unarmed, and rapier/dagger at age 15. Now certified in six different weapons, Joe has choreographed the violence for over 30 theatre productions in Los Angeles. Don't mess with him, or he will fake punch you so hard.
