THE STORY:

Born in Brooklyn, Joseph spent years in the bar and restaurant business as everything from a bartender to front man to operations manager at some of Manhattan’s most notable culinary hot spots.

Using his formidable skill and knowledge of the industry, not to mention his warmth and charm, he eventually branched out on his own to open Virgola (www.virgolanyc.com), an intimate space in the heart of Greenwich Village, which he calls his greatest achievement to date.

As for boxing, Joseph’s interest and introduction to the sport was facilitated by none other than Fighters4Life’s own Perry D’Alessio. After much discussion about the health and mental benefits to the sweet science, Joseph made his way to Gleason’s.

Needless to say, he was hooked.

Boxing is something that’s profoundly helped him with managing the stress associated with launching a new business (single handedly taking his restaurant from concept through construction to curating). It’s been quite a fight to get where he is today and because of that Joseph is excited to be getting in the ring on behalf Fighters 4Life and Give A Kid A Dream in the hopes of making a difference and inspiring people to fight for better in their own lives.
