"Willing to experience aloneness,
I discover connection everywhere;
Turning to face my fear,
I meet the warrior who lives within..."
excerpt from Jennifer Welwood's poem "Unconditional"
Nice to Meet You!
Soon after dancing in the Grammy award-winning music video for Old Town Road and singing in her cowboy boots on Emmy award-winning Shark Tank, Lisa Konczal is pulled to take a break from Los Angeles and head back to her roots. Wind in her hair and the meaning of “home” on her mind, she drives solo across the country, experiencing the dichotomy of responses to this cowboy boot-clad girl, with California plates.
Join Lisa as she boot scoots in and out of her convertible and around small towns, having spontaneous adventures and turning strangers into newfound friends - from California to Carolina… and beyond.
With uplifting energy and subtle depth, Nice to Meet You! is about the amazing moments of connection and added perspective that so often occur from saying a simple, "Hello, nice to meet you," to a stranger.
It's an upbeat and authentic adventure with elements about identity, stereotypes, the concept of "home"... and ultimately showing how no matter where you go, you'll meet nice folks.
Nice to Meet You! is about the lens you take with you whether venturing far away, to the other side of town - or just in life.

Connecting and Uplifting Folks Everywhere,
with an Inclusive Reach
and Lasting Impact
While driving from California back to my North Carolina roots and then exploring new places in my home region, I started filming an uplifting television series intended for streaming platforms:
Nice to Meet You!
I modified my plan to return directly to Los Angeles, with a trans-Atlantic venture. This interlude landed me in a country I used to call home... ultimately starting a long held dream of being tri-coastal.
I filmed that, too! Some of that is already available on YouTube.
The final episode will be filmed early, 2023.
Carova, North Carolina
I'm basically a French speaking, cowboy boot wearing, Salsa dancing, rollerskating,Carolina / California girl...
...having fun exploring, learning and connecting with strangers from seemingly very different places...
...exploring notions of complex identities, redefined priorities and "home."
