I'm not an actor who failed and then decided
to become an agent so he could get back at other actors. My
background is in production.
I graduated from film school in New York and ended up working
as a free-lance cameraman. I was the guy who would go anywhere
and film anything. Over the years, I did everything from shooting
live surgery in Alabama to documenting illegal factory conditions
in Central America.
After a little misunderstanding in Haiti, I returned to New
York and started working as a music video producer. During
that time, I helped produce over twenty videos for artists
like The Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, and The Black Crowes.
Tired of the music business, I decided it was time for a change.
So I packed my bags and headed west.
When I arrived in L.A., I had a lot of money and no job. Six
months later, I had spent the money and still had no job.
So I started looking for an entry level position that would
give me an opportunity to learn more about the industry.
After several interviews, I was hired as an assistant at Paradigm,
one of the largest talent agencies in L.A. They assigned me
to a senior agent and to my surprise, I ended up falling in
love with the business.
After going through their training program for almost two
years, I left to become an agent at Epstein Wyckoff &
Associates. I stayed there for five years, then made the move
to GVA where I've been working for the last ten.
During my time at GVA, I’ve had the pleasure of working with actors like Eva Longoria ("Desperate Housewives"), Masi Oka ("Heroes"), Kirsten Vangsness ("Criminal Minds"), Jeff Fahey ("Lost"), Taylor Kinney ("Chicago Fire"), and many others.
Becoming an agent was never part of my plan but after fifteen
years in this business, I'm pleased to say that I'm very happy
with the way things turned out.
And I haven't killed any actors yet.
