Why Joshua Tree?
Growing up in California, I've always been drawn to the desert...
especially Joshua Tree.
It's a sacred place, nestled in the High Desert.
With its mysterious trees, amazing rock formations, and some would say... magic.
By some fortunate twist of fate, I can now call Joshua Tree my home.
But I found something else here; something rare in this world.
I found a community of artists, musicians,...
and seekers of various traditions.
The key word here is "community".
Over the next 6-9 months, I will attempt to capture the spirit of the community on film.
My first goal is to produce a 90-minute feature documentary film about the community of Joshua Tree.
You are welcome to follow me on my journey.
I hope you do.
