Joe founded Twopenny Productions in 2008. Before that, he worked as a Crisis Intervention Training role-player with Law Enforcement agencies around the State of Colorado. He has been a stage actor for over thirty years, appearing at many Colorado and Virginia theatres. He also records audio books for the Library of Congress. Joe graduated with honors in Theatre Performance from Longwood College in Virginia. While responsible for all aspects of Twopenny Productions, he finds the greatest rewards in doing the actual scenario work with student/officers.
The real strength of Twopenny Productions lies in our Role-Players. Each brings years of experience in widely varied areas of professional performance. Academic achievement is balanced with real world know-how. Most have years of CIT experience, all have undergone CBI background checks, and a ride-along with a CIT police officer is a prerequisite to full status as a Twopenny actor. They have all been trained in the philosophy of "Coaching to Success" through which the student's achievement and progress is the primary objective. Shown below are some of our Role-playing Professionals.
