As the Director of Media, I have provided significant change to a well recognized talent agency. I developed a TV/media division in a high fashion modeling agency to help their company grow and succeed. During the last three years I formed valuable relationships with local talent, clients and casting directors. Prior to being an agent in south florida, I worked in the New York market for CESD in the on-camera commercial division. I am confident that my skills, experiences, training and personality will benefit your company. I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my assets and credentials in person. Below please find my resume for your review and consideration.
