About My Business:


Biography of Joe RABL Joe RABL was born in Graz, Western Styria, where the “Schilcher-wine” and the famous pumpkin seed oil are grown. Joe grew up not far from the home of the famous native Austrian Arnold Schwarzenegger. It seems that this has influenced Joe in two ways at a very early stage in his life: His love to culinary delights and his passion for the movie business. At the age of eight he served his mother his self-prepared creations which were tasting very good. His acting ambitions already started in kindergarten at St. Stefan ob Stainz where he took over several roles. During his later schooldays he participated regularly in various performances. A big dream came true when he could finally play the role of d'Artagnan in a school production of the play "The three Musketeers". In 1993 he took a small role in the film version of the play. This gave him the opportunity to learn more about the film industry from scratch and laid the foundation for his career. Individuality is very important to him, and this is reflected in his career at any time. All this finally led Joe to Hollywood, but before this he completed his training as a chef and catering specialist after school was over. At the age of 18 he attended one of the best schools of cuisine (tourism school in Bad Gleichenberg) in Austria and two years later successfully completed his training there. After that nothing more kept him at home and so he set out on the way to Los Angeles. "When arriving at the big city of L.A. I felt very small", he once told in retrospective. Picture-perfect, he made his first living as a dishwasher. Then things started heading in the right direction and he worked as a private chef at numerous parties and met influential people. Amongst other things, he cooked for the American composer and music producer James Newton Howard, David Geffen, and the professional tennis player Pete Sampras. DHL founder Bill Robinson employed Joe´s extraordinary culinary skills and Arnold Schwarzenegger was served real” Spätzle” with natural pulp from the common home. In 2005 he accompanied Schwarzenegger during his campaign for California Governor. Through these jobs, Joe RABL paid his way through acting schools in Los Angeles (Harry Mastrogeorge acting classes and Stella Adler classes) and New York (Lee Strasberg Institute). He made his debut in the Hollywood production of the famous hit "Godzilla" (TriStar Pictures, Roland Emmerich, Dean Devlin), and then he was seen in the film "Breakdown" (Paramount Pictures, Dino de Laurentiis, Jonathan Mostow) with Kurt Russell. In addition he worked for David Geffen (Geffen records, co-founder of DreamWorks movie studios). As a commercial model and actor Joe RABL stands in front of the camera in Austria and Germany for photo shootings, TV and print commercials and magazines. Since 2007 he is working for 3Austria, EnBW, Sixt Germany, DEKRA, Bang & Olufsen runs SAP worldwide, Mercedes, Württemberger Wine (Württemberg most beautiful sunset), Pro7, Sat1, Arte, ARD and ORF.
