About Joe

I have a political series I want to pitch but time is critical, especially with what is going on now. I have the script, a pitch deck with actors named but it needs to get out now. An eight part series for Amazon or Netflix. I call it "None of the Above." To pacify disgruntled voters the governor of California puts an option to vote for None of the Above. Chaos ensues when None of the Above wins the election.

Unique traits: Raced cars professionally and won my first professional race at the Six Hours of Sebring in 1985. Three years ago I was sick -bad. I was 245 and needed all kinds of medication. I worked hard for a year got down to 180 and need no medication. I was a single mom and raised my kids. My son Beaux now races and works for Indy and IMSA.
