About Joseph

I work in news, and I've been fortunate enough to earn a position in NBCUniversal's Page Program. 60 people were chosen from a pool of 17,000 applications the year I became a NBC Page. That means I'm smart or lucky. I like to think I'm lucky.

After working as a page, I took a freelance assignment with CBS News until I took a 1-year contract position on the CNBC news desk where I currently work. But, my time is almost up, and I'm back on the job hunt again. And in general, I love investigating stories, conducting interviews and pitching stories as much as I love writing them.

I really see myself as a strong news writer with a proven aptitude for television news.

I really do look forward to hearing from you, and any veterans out there...please feel free to contact me if there is anything you need.
