Joseph decided he wanted to be a pilot when he was 4, visiting his Grandma on a Republic Airlines jet airplane. In college flying was put on hold for a time. Then after working for almost 15 years in the legal industry, Joseph was given the opportunity to take an Intro Flight at Santa Monica Flyers and immediately fell back in love. Joseph obtained his Sport License in 2014, Private in 2015 and CFI Sport in 2016. Joseph also started managing Santa Monica Flyers in early 2016.
