Joey began serious composition studies at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, earning his Bachelor of Music degree. He returned to his hometown of Los Angeles where he began his career working in television with Emmy®--winning composer W.G. "Snuffy" Walden, co-composing the final seasons of Once and Again (starring Sela Ward), and Providence (starring Melina Kanakaredes). Joey also provided orchestrations for Aaron Sorkin's The West Wing as well as a number of other primetime dramas and sitcoms.
Joey has composed the music to features, network/cable television series, video games and provided arrangements for various recording artists. For 5 years, Joey composed the orchestral score to NCsoft's Lineage, one of the biggest online role-playing games in history. As a conductor and orchestrator, he has had the pleasure of working with several emerging and well-established Hollywood composers (including his cousin Randy) on projects across the media spectrum.
Currently, Joey's music can be heard on the hit ABC comedy The Middle (starring Patricia Heaton), and the TLC docu-series, Little People, Big World, for which his underscore was nominated for a Primetime Emmy® Award.
