Joseph discovered his interest in art at a young age and continues to pursue his passion for creativity in a variety of outlets.
He was honored to have his first painting chosen to hang at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.; which lead to exhibitions at the John McEnroe Gallery in Soho, New York. Mr. Simeone's love for visual art grew with lessons from Fay Van Dyke and guidance from Robert Rauschenberg, whom he had the opportunity to know while dancing with Merce Cunningham. In 2014, Joseph sold his work to The Getty Trust, L.A. and the Swissotel Buyuk Efes Izmir Hotel, in Izmir Turkey.
Having studied Dance and Music Composition, Joseph graduated from The Juilliard School in 2004. He has danced professionally for: ABT, Merce Cunningham Co., Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp & with Broadway productions of A Bronx Tale, The Phantom of the Opera, & West Side Story, as Riff: for this performance he won two Best Actor Awards and published acclaim from the story’s author, Arthur Laurents (in his last memoir "The Rest of the Story", 2012).
Currently, he can be seen on broadway in A Bronx Tale! Recently seen in Hunchback of Notre Dame, at Paper Mill Playhouse; Little Dancer, at The Kennedy Center; Irma La Douce and Zorba, at City Center ENCORES! Mr. Simeone is also composing music for a new 1930's style musical and an opera adaptation of a famous Alfred Hitchcock property: by special arrangement with ICM and support from the Los Angeles Opera League.
Joseph's direct exposure to the creative process and personal methodology of these masters mentioned has greatly affected his technique, insight, and mission: combining to create a truly unique artist.
