Since that trip to Marfa | Detour
17:23

In 2018, I took an important road trip with an old friend that led to the creation of this show. On that trip, the two of us were both experiencing a lot of transition in life. 


At this point, it’s been four years since I’ve seen or spoken to that friend and I’ve always wondered what happened in his life after we took that trip… so I caught up with him to ask.

📍Joshua Tree, CA
40:34

What comes to mind when you think of Joshua Tree? Is it psychedelic drugs, or weird Dr. Seuss looking trees and the wide-open desert landscape? Maybe it's a place for bands like The Eagles and U2 or even influencers with big hats who just wanna escape from LA for the weekend and take selfies. Or maybe, it's a place where people come to heal or to make something, or both.

📍Mount Rushmore, SD
19:47

Mount Rushmore National Memorial was built as a tourist trap and a brash tribute to democracy, but if you lean in, it's hard not to notice its faults. Even after they’ve been chiseled away and sanded down.
