The Story of Gabriel Conte

Gabriel Conte is one of the many entertainers and YouTubers who turned their enthusiasm for creativity and performing into a career. He began developing his love for entertaining after joining his local middle and high school theatre program in his hometown of Miami, Florida. Quickly rising to fame after posting short and funny videos on the app Vine was only the start of Gabriel’s successful career in the entertainment industry. He’s now accumulated over 1 million followers on both YouTube and Instagram, and over 250,000 followers on Twitter.  Being passionate about the profession he chose only added to the fun of it. Gabriel tells us that “entertaining was the first thing I absolutely loved doing and couldn’t stop doing so I knew, that in some way, I needed to make that a part of what I do for the rest of my life.” But, like any other job, obtaining a career in the entertainment field comes with its cons. He explains that “the entertainment business isn’t easy like it may seem on the opposite side of the screen. It’s an extremely competitive and growing business and those who continue to be successful are the ones who work at it the hardest. There was a point where I was trying to figure out what truly made me happy. I had a hard time finding that in my work because of the stress level it all brought on me. I started to ask myself, ‘what in my work week am I the happiest while doing?’ That question has made me so much happier and allowed me to pursue the things I love the most and not waste my time on stressing over things I don’t enjoy.” He also says that coming up with creative content was sometimes a struggle. There would be times when creativity flowed and other times when there was a mental block and he had no new ideas. When asked if he could go back and tell his younger self one thing before gaining a mass amount of followers, Gabriel responded with “I would tell my younger self not to worry about what I will be doing for work in the future because I will love it and everything will work out perfectly.” Gabriel admits that his life has changed since gaining such a mass following, but only changed as much as he allowed it to. “I have tried to keep my life fairly ‘normal’ so I don’t grow a big ego or think I’m some big shot or anything. I’m just a normal dude so that’s how I like to picture myself. But I definitely think the level of ‘fame’ I have gained has changed my life so positively. My wife and I found each other through the reach I had online. I’m able to live in LA where I dreamed of living my whole life. I can work in a business and field I absolutely love, and so much more.” He surrounds himself with family and friends who value him as he is rather than the popularity he’s gained, and allows God to be the number one factor in his life as well as his biggest influence. Along with these people that keep him grounded is Gabriel’s wife, Jess.  Jess is in the entertainment industry as well and the two met initially over Instagram, and then during a trip she made to LA to visit family. Jess is included in one of the many projects Gabriel has coming up in the near future. You can also expect to see Gabriel continue to portray Matt Johnsmeyer on Go90’s original series Mr. Student Body President, which has been renewed for another 30 episodes. CLICK HERE to view Gabriel’s full spread editorial: http://www.shustringmagazine.com/magazine/
