Born to a teacher and a carpenter from Jersey on a Vermont commune near the abandoned Concord Air Force Base (whose guards first saw the UFO lights in the sky later to “abduct” Betty and Barney Hill in New Hampshire).
With degrees in English, Psychology and Communications, he quit his TV news cameraman job, rode his Harley solo cross-country and published Freedom Road—a travel memoir battling the broken American Dream. He is now penning book #19.
JoDa built a cabin on an old Christmas tree farm and wrote 33 one-hour episodes of the Departed Harvest dark comedy, winning the Rhode Island Film Festival Screenplay Competition and others.

Our “comedy-thriller” gleans inspiration from true life: JoDa’s best friend sold his soul to the lethal Northern California underground to finance his Rock band, blended with JoDa’s commune-Air Fo Base heritage—and the loss of his little Brother.
These allegorical stories galvanize our dystopian tale, set one week into the future, starring Navajo inspirational speaker-producer, Loren Anthony.
JoDa Kickstarted, wrote, produced, directed, shot and edited a short Departed Harvest film at Luis Guzman’s home in Vermont. JoDa’s beloved cat was killed by the actor’s dog and… long story.
