Shortly before joining the cast of Neighbours in October 2012, Josef played Charlie Redding in the Gordon Frost Organisation world premiere Australian season of An Officer and a Gentleman, appeared as Dale on Home and Away, was Choreographer on the musical Every Single Saturday and was writer/producer on the seven-part webisode series, At The Fork.
In 2011 Josef appeared as Auctus in the popular TV series, Spartacus - Gods of the Arena and prior to this played Patrick throughout Season One of the Logie award winning ABC TV series Dance Academy.
Though Josef was a soloist with The Australian Ballet, a leading man with Sydney Dance Company and Modern Dans Topluluguu in Turkey, he is perhaps best known for originating the role of Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story on Stage, for which he was awarded Outstanding Performance in a Stage Musical in the Australian Dance Awards.
After completing the Australian tour, Josef went on to open the London West End production - which broke pre-sale box office records - and play the role throughout the USA during its pre-Broadway tour.
In 2003 Josef travelled to Ramallah, Palestine as the recipient of a grant awarded by the Australia Council for the Arts. His film-work Art, During Siege shot throughout Palestine was made into a short-form documentary.
