Joseph began playing the drums at 11 years old in elementary school band. He quickly expanded beyond school band in performing with the drum set and marching percussion. As a young man, he was very active in marching percussion, he has played in the pit of musical theatre and has dabbled in many other musical projects. He has studied privately with Marv Dahlgren and received his AAS degree at the top of his class from McNally Smith College of Music. Since then he has played in a multitude of genres with as many or more musical groups producing both original music and covers. His life experience has brought him abroad to play in both Europe and in the Middle East.
Beyond his musical interests, Joseph works as a farmer and a leather worker in the Mankato area. He and his fiancée both enjoy cooking and entertaining guests!
