Musician Goes Monk



I'm traveling the world to first hand experience different walks of life and to intimately learn the beliefs of other cultures, while unbiasedly taking in the world, from different perspectives. 

My goal is to be a window through which those unable to travel can see the world and my mission is to plant gardens everywhere I visit.



To intimately experience the beliefs of other cultures first hand.


To learn the foreign instruments and healing practices from around the world.


To be a window into international culture, specifically: art, music, spirituality, and wellness.


If you’d like to come along, you are more than welcome to join me! 

I'll be documenting the journey and sharing:

Reflections Epiphanies Serendipities and Milestones on my website,

Posting updates on Instagram.

Releasing podcast conversations and jam sessions with people from my travels. on sound cloud and Spotify.

Giving real-time updates on snapchat.

My handle is Leaveit2joshua on all social media =)



See you soon,








Donations will be used to:


Help fund my travel transportation costs.

Help people in need that I come across during my travels.

Help build and leave behind gardens in the places I visit.(a personal mission of mine as a gardener)

To cover the cost of art supplies and shipping fees as I continue to gift away my art

everyone who donates will not only receive a painting but also a postcard made from photography of my travels and a souvenir from my adventures.

I simply want to be a window through which those who are unable to travel can experience the world.
