Event Summary
Jordan x Top Fashion Present: Skies The Limit with Jared Avalos & Steven Connor.
Jared and Steven will provide live teaching examples and discuss the different steps it takes to be successful in the world of film and photography.

Jared Avalos is a 22-year-old director and founder of Dreamer Data, a production company based out of Chicago. Growing up in Minooka, IL Jared credits his small town for a majority of his creativity and inspiration. “Growing up in a town nobody has heard of is something I used to view as a disadvantage, but over time I’ve come to realize that it’s an advantage and allows me to bring a unique perspective to the table.” Jared is self-taught in directing and video editing, after attending a year of college he decided it was not for him and continued on to pursue filmmaking full-time.
Jared began directing in late 2017 after a friend asked if he could shoot a music video for them. Working with artists by the likes of Dreamer Isioma, Nina Tech, and Mere Raj Jared’s work has been seen on Billboard, BET, and Rolling Stones. Jared expressed how important working with artists he can also consider friends is to him. Keeping things organic and natural has been one of the important keys to his success. Jared claims running a business is the hard part of what he does, the creativity comes naturally. Producing, directing, and editing a majority of the projects within the company, Jared credits the team around him for the success when saying “I’m a product of the people I surround myself with, everyone around me inspires me in their own way.” 

Jared’s aspirations for the future are to continue telling stories in whatever way he can. He aims to inspire those that have repeatedly been told they were not good enough and show that with a little bit of determination and hard work, they can achieve greatness in what they desire.
