JOEY SYLVESTER was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He studied film and theatre at Columbia College Chicago. As a youngster, Joey played football, wrestling, and baseball #12. He carried his video camera everywhere and herded his friends from various location to the next doing scene after scene. Perhaps this was only child’s-play, but Joey’s imagination had been activated, and a seed had been planted. Little did he know that he had tapped his creative and logistical talent for directing, producing, and acting.
