Cardozie Jones has spent his life deeply rooted in the performing arts. A Philadelphia native, he moved to New York City in 2001 where he studied musical theater and eventually found a passion for theater education, writing, and directing. For the past decade, he has split his time between educator and artist. Having spent many years as a classroom teacher and school administrator, Cardozie currently works as a Leadership, Culture and Diversity consultant supporting schools and other organizations in how best to engage and empower diverse populations. In addition to his work in the educational sphere, Cardozie works as a director and choreographer at both the community and commercial level. He is thrilled to be part of the legacy that is Pentejoy.
