Growing up, acting was my passion. To be able to lose yourself and play pretend with amazingly talented people and watch it all come to life like never before on the big screen was absolutely fascinating, and had me from my first opening titles.
When I grew up and went chasing that crazy dream, I found out very quickly that there is a lot more to being successful in the industry than playing pretend. Everything from professional headshots, demo reels, and audition tapes, to the extensive amount of social media attention needed was not only a big lifestyle change but a huge hit to the wallet! I needed to find a solution without breaking the bank, and that was when I picked up my first camera. The connection was instant and electric!
What I had thought was a passion for acting all those years was something so much deeper, my true love was Story. But not just my own story, the stories that are everywhere in every moment. This new dream became Unconventional Productions, a production company focused on microshorts with macrostories. My goal is to take a feeling, a moment in time, a narrative, and transmit that across digital media in a way that is truly representative of the story and soul behind any entrepreneur.
