His professional acting and directing credits include The Phoenix Theatre Circle (Columbus) and Virginia Stage Company (Norfolk, Va.) In addition, he teaches theatre at Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio. He earned a BFA in theatre at MU and an MA in English from the same university. Q: You began your theatrical training at MU in the mid-90s. What led you to the stage and who would you pick as your most influential mentors? Joy: I was a terribly shy 15-year-old kid.
