Name:
Gregory Joseph
Location: Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (but my heart and CD collection are still in NYC)
DOB: Over three decades ago
Email: gjoseph(at)2walls.com

Bio: It was a cold, snowy night in New York City when Gregory Joseph was bought into this world. From the outset, it was clear from those closest to him that someday he would have a holiday or some type of infectious disease named after him.

He spent his formative years in New Jersey doing what kids in their formative years in New Jersey do: seeing how many keg party’s one could attend before curfew. His first music concert were the Beastie Boys, a fact he loves to point out. However, Mr. Joseph always fails to reveal the real reason the Beasties were his first show: his parents wouldn’t let him go see Duran Duran earlier that year because it was on a school night.

If you ask anyone they’ll be quick to tell you that college was a success. Mr. Joseph learned many things in college the most important being that arrested and convicted are two entirely different things. The other important lesson college taught Mr. Joseph was that anything he did in those four years (OK, five) would have no baring on how successful or unsuccessful he would be in the future.

Post-college life bought some important jobs: an aide on Capitol Hill, advisor to a Presidential candidate. And he has held some not so important jobs. Like the job Mr. Joseph held for six months in 2002 which was basically once a week going down to the bank to cash his unemployment check. It was hard work but only Mr. Joseph or someone with an eerily close signature could do it.
