Principal Unicorn | Director of Photography | Editor
Hi! I'm Renée Gannon, I'm the Principal Unicorn / Director of Photography / Editor of Make Unicorns Great Again based in Salem, MA. I've been an entrepreneur at heart for as long as I can remember, always creating something from scratch. I have accumulated over 15 years of experience in start-up and small business with a strong focus on digital marketing, media and content creation and integrated video production. I am a results driven person with a creative, big-picture approach to media, marketing and social. If there's one thing I understand, it is the need for a brand to be able to tell their story in a unique, succinct way. And with just a touch of that magical, out-of-the-box flair. That's just the Unicorn in me.
After a successful five year run with my paint and sip business, Wicked Art Bar, I decided to form Make Unicorns Great Again (MUGA) as a way to harness my passion for media into one creative media and marketing machine. I love to connect to the many talented creatives in the region, many of which I'll draw upon for a specific project or client request. No dream is too big or too small for MUGA.
I also love to cook, and when time allows, I like to showcase some of my favorite recipes / eating experimenations through The Unicorn Cooks special blog feature. In addition to cooking for fun with my many beloved kitchen gadgets, I also loves spending time with my wife, our friends, my family, going camping, hanging out with our four rescue cats and traveling, whenever we can squeeze in a road trip or two!
One of my other passions is creating timelapses, it is truly an art form that cannot be rushed or forced, and allows for one to become at peace with nature while time elapses. I always tries to produce at least one timelapse whenever I travel some place new and put out a new reel every year with updated footage Please enjoy my 2017 Timelapse Reel (2018 is still in progress).
