Founder “The Space Between”
Joseph Nittolo (Joey) is a Los Angeles born and bred native who grew up on the streets of Hollywood in the 1970s. His childhood was one of constant movement due to parents who struggled with addiction, it was because of this instability that Joey found a sense of calm belonging through the surfing community keeping him out of trouble.
At the age of 25, Joey met his wife Jacy, this gave Joey a sense of stability as he laid the foundation for his life off the streets, starting with providing for his family in the way that he never had growing up.
Joey counts his limited education and the years of hard earned street smarts, (what Joey came to later know as intuition) as the conduit for a series of companies. These spanned across a variety of industries ranging from credit card processing, accounting, post production, real estate investment and most notably as the CEO for Nittolo Entertainment. Joey wrote the original story & produced the Vin Diesel action movie “A Man Apart”. Joey also produced the Chrisopher Walken cult classic, PoolHall Junkies, along with the Patricia Arquette, Billy Bob Thornton thriller, The Badge. He funneled the financial and critical success of these projects into Nittolo Development, which would go on to build multi-million dollar homes for the Southern California elite.
In 2017, Joey had his first spiritual awakening. This path would lead him to taking steps that were not immediately understood by his closest family and friends. Joey was facing at a lifetime of medication. Joey separated himself completely from the most important parts of his existence; his family and business empire, which he had been tirelessly building his entire life. He walked away due to his strong new connection and belief which he calls The Space Between.
Joey then embarked on an isolated journey. With all the adversity facing his spiritual shift, Joey found Kundalini Yoga & his connection to Yogi Bhajan as the channel for managing his powerful awakening. It was during his first trip to India, Joey wrote the original idea for The Space Between. It is the intangible space which is unique to every soul, it is the balance between Heaven, Man & Earth. Joey is currently rechanneling his energy by creating a movement. The Space Between is a vehicle to bring attention to the current state of the waters of the world.
