Since then, he has studied Siddha, Kundalini, Hatha, Vinyasa, Qui Quong and various other forms of life force cultivation techniques via physical or metaphysical applications.
For a number of years, Joseph worked in the medical field serving hospice patients from ALL walks of life. Men, women and children. He refers to this as his "Joshua" period. The lessons and inspirations gleaned from his many encounters helped to cultivate two core values -Compassion and Excellence.
As a fitness professional, he gravitated towards special populations. Whether it was winning with autism (a program he built from the ground up) or geriatric training; Joseph strove to bring excellence at every occasion.
His work with clinical referrals from diabetics to post rehab clients has bought him powerful endorsements. Not excluding his military preparation programs as well as his work with clients employed by various government agencies –including the FBI and Secret Service.
Joseph LOVES what he does. He enjoys the victories of his clients and he champions them amidst their struggles. His personal ambition –to touch 1 million lives within his single lifetime, led to the birth of Neighborhood Studios, LLC.

My journey to improve my health started almost 10 years ago when I was diagnosed with tumors that were pressing on my bladder, making things like running painful. With a few changes in my nutrition, I was later able to shrink the tumors that could not be removed surgically and resume running and training for a triathlon. It was that year that I was invited to a special program on Integrative Medicine approaches to diseases common in African Americans. It was a wonderful experience and led me to get a certification in Integrative and Holistic Medicine by ABIHM. Since then I have had 100’s of hours of training in Functional , Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Lifestyle Medicine. I know from personal experience, that our genes are not our fate. We (the patients and the doctors working as a team) can improve outcomes with genomic testing and the understanding of metabolic pathways that are influenced by nutrients -or the lack of- leading to genetic mutations. Making corrections in nutrition and lifestyle can have a positive impact on preventing and reversing diseases”.
