Yosef is originally from Honolulu, Hawaii. He began acting in 2011 and quickly landed roles on CBS HAWAII FIVE-0 and LAST RESORT. In 2012 he decided to obtain a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Miami. During his time there he studied with German film director Ralph Kinnard (A Mi Me Gusta, Miami Love Affair) at the Miami Acting Studio. In 2019 alone, he booked roles on HBO's THE OUTSIDER, CBS' MACGYVER, NETFLIX'S HIT AND RUN, and UNIVERSAL/BLUMHOUSE blockbuster film THE HUNT. As of 2021 he resides in NYC and trains with Matt Newton. As a teenager, Yosef was a professional tennis player under the name Joseph Kasnetz. He competed on the Mens World Tour where he learned 6 other languages (i.e Russian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, German, Spanish, and Hebrew) which he utilizes frequently in his roles. When he's not on set, Yosef is chasing ocean swells around the globe as big wave surfing has been a  passion and major part of his life since childhood.
