 Joseph hails from Boston and was born into an Irish Catholic family and has known the presence of Spirit in his life since infancy.  Coming from a traditional Jesuit background and bound for priesthood, a role for which he thought he had been destined, Joe found himself conflicted about his unusual abilities and at the threshold of ordination  to become a permanent deacon, he left the Catholic seminary to embark on a new journey,  searching tirelessly to understand the incredible value of his gifts.  He emerged finally to embrace and develop his talents as a Medium, Registered Rand Reiki Master, Healer and Spiritual Advisor, studying and working with world renowned teachers in Catholicism, Spiritualism, Buddhism and other spiritual modalities to enhance and utilize his natural abilities.  He holds a BA in Philosophy from Boston College and performed his graduate work in Theology at Colgate Crozer Divinity School and St. Bernard's Institute.
