Why I dance:
I am beyond thrilled to be dancing in the 2020 Dancing With the Delaware Stars fundraiser. Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware provide much-needed enrichment activities for kids across the State and I share their core belief that kids should have a “safe place to learn and grow.” The work of Mom’s House is also vitally important to youth development and creating strong families. When I dance on January 25th, I’ll be dancing to help ensure that these organizations continue to offer programs that create hope and opportunity for kids and families across the State.
Currently one of the most sought after salsa / bachata instructor in the industry today.

Joe combined his extensive knowledge of dance and creativity to develop a distinctive style of dance known as “Philly Style ” — an explosive salsa and Bachata style that combines smooth moves with sharp, complicated turn patterns. This unique style has earned Joe the reputation as one of the Worlds Best Leads.

When I’m not dancing:
When I’m not dancing, I’m an attorney and the Director of Regulatory Strategy and Services at Delmarva Power. In this role I oversee the regulatory and compliance activity for Delmarva Power and its sister company, Atlantic City Electric. I enjoy serving on professional boards, volunteering with the Esther Project (a faith-based women’s empowerment organization), and volunteering on the Board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware. My most memorable experience as a Boys & Girls Club volunteer is when I served as a judge for the 2019 Youth of the Year Competition. I loved talking with the students, all of whom were so talented and inspiring, and being able to encourage their continued growth. The Youth of the Year Competition is a clear reminder of how amazing our kids are, how bright the future is, and how important it is for communities to have a thriving Club.
