As seriously as we take our commitment to the development of our artists and clients, we are similarly as serious about developing the careers of the people who come through our doors.

That emphasis on professional development has enabled us to be a part of the career arcs of industry stalwarts like Megan Jacobs, former talent buyer at the legendary Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, Jennifer McDowell, creative director at Olivia, Samantha Davis, talent buyer at Mezzanine SF, Casey Philips, founder and director of the Force Agency and production stalwarts like Michele Rodrigues, Molly Foehl, and Caren Reuven.
