I collect crazy and catch kitchens on fire.”

B.A. in Creative Writing at Duquesne University

Joseph currently works as a line cook while taking part in independent artistic endeavors with his friends. In his free time he enjoys hat shopping and antiquing. Occasionally he can be seen taking long walks in the evenings down the crooked allies of the city. On summer nights you can find him perched on the top landing of the public stairways moleskin in one hand,  brown bag in the other. On a rare occasion he may be found fishing the Allegheny from the sunken barges under the R. D. Fleming Bridge without a license, or driving too fast on the winding North Hills’ roads by moonlight while smoking to many cigarettes. He loves to eat pizza while watching movies of all kinds. Joseph wishes he would read a little more and day dream a little less. He often mumbles to himself about this out of habit when he isn’t sure what to say.
