I am a talent manager with 30+ years’ experience. I specialise in helping actors build a lasting, successful career in the entertainment industry.
I manage actors in New Zealand, Australia, America and England.
Every one of my clients is on a journey……all in a different place and many on a different path. SOme prefer commercial roles, some theatre including musical theatre and some film and television.
My role is to work with them as individuals, to actively seek opportunities for them, to support and advise them on their journey and, accessing the industry networks I have built during my career, connect them with the right people at the right time.
