Every credit is an amazing one. When I get to deliver the news that our client booked Broadway, TV, Film or any other project they are passionate about, it is my favorite moment.
How did you become an agent?
I studied acting and directing early on, but after college I began as a casting director at the San Diego Repertory Theatre. Then I moved to Los Angeles and started working in production on movies of the week and other television series. When I had to move back to New York because my mother was sick with pancreatic cancer, I thought to myself: I’ve been an actor, I’ve directed, I’ve been a casting director…what could the next step be? I responded to an ad for an agent’s assistant at the infamous Beverly Anderson Agency, and when we met, it was kismet. Beverly said she saw things in me that she’d seen in herself years ago, and she took me under her wing and groomed me to be a talent agent. When she passed away, I took it hard, and rather than going to work for someone else, I opened The Price Group. That was late 2007. It seems I found my calling in life: the perfect mix of entertainment and sales.
