Joey's interests are:
Joey has passed 8th grade and high school but he dropped out of college in the end of his second year because he felt that it wasn't what he wanted to do.
Joey, as most people call him, had a bad childhood. When he was just 4 years old his parents got a divorce. Then when he was 5 his sister was his role model so played with dolls and wore dresses, which got him teased by his cousin a lot, because he wanted to be just like her. When Joey was 6 he was living with his single mother and his sister in an apartment complex. The apartment was so old that some old paint chips fell onto some of Joey's toys and he ate them. That caused him to get lead paint poisoning and a learning disability.
When he was 7 his step dad came into the picture. Joey would call him the chinese man because he would always have chinese food. But just 6 months later Joey's mom and step dad decided to separate because things weren't going as planed. Then Joey's mom started heavily drinking. After this started, Joey's mom and sister started to get into some pretty heated fights, almost every day, about his mom's drinking. Also, in a failed attempt to bring his two kittens to the top bunk of his bed, Joey cracked his head open and got 5 staples. When Joey was 9 his step dad came back and his mom sobered up for 2 years. Through all this, Joey had a small youtube career going with his best friend, Brittany. At the age of 19 Joey and Brittany packed up her car and moved all the way from Boston to Los Angeles.
