director of production
paul bean


As a Texan, born and bred, with a bachelor's degree in Speech Communications from University of North Texas and 30 years of television experience, Paul has not only been to the rodeo, he's directed it ... and also shot or edited a wide variety of other productions from Houston Astros baseball to interviews with several Presidents to a live satellite feed that allowed doctors in the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. to consult in the aftermath of the Chernobyl meltdown.

When he came West to Las Vegas in 1995 he discovered his love of the Mojave Desert and found the perfect job to express it as the principal videographer and editor of the popular travel and adventure show, "Outdoor Nevada." Paul hung out the Joshua Tree shingle in 1998 as the shop's sole proprietor. Since then the company has grown and incorporated and earned multiple Emmys along with other honors for programs that are as visionary and diverse as one might expect from Paul and the team of talented colleagues he has attracted.

joan bean


Joan has spent 30 years in public television and cable broadcasting as a producer, sales director, and even an on-camera host of her own television magazine program … in French! She raised $5 million directing the Children's Miracle Network Telethon, leaped advertising sales goals in a single bound for Cox Cable, and applied rock scrambling and conflict management skills to the upbringing of one brilliant son.

With her BA in Education and MA in French & English from Brigham Young University, Joan is able to pronounce, translate, and provide a certain "Je ne sais quoi" to every Joshua Tree project.
