Tampa Models and Talent Consulting
Nothing compares to helping people make their dreams come true! As a talent manager, I help aspiring actors and models break into the entertainment business and turn their dreams into a career.
With a background in acting and modeling, I started Tampa Models and Talent Consulting in 2000. After years of having people ask me how they could get started, I finally put together a company to help others.
We are a boutique business and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I work directly with a handful of clients to ensure that they are booked in jobs that match their goals.
I love the variety of my work. One day I am modeling myself, and the next I’m managing jobs for my clients. It is always changing. The most exciting part is seeing my clients excel in the amazing entertainment business.
My areas of expertise are lifestyle print, commercials, spokesmodeling, tradeshows, TV hosting, and voiceovers.
Seeing my clients succeed is my biggest reward, but I have also received national and regional recognition for my work, including Director of the Year award from a national talent competition.
Unfortunately, there are some scams in this business and early on I ran into a couple of them. I learned from my mistakes and can help you avoid the traps that are out there. Remembering the tough time I had in the beginning really inspired me to create a company that is talent centered and based on honest principals.
I work in the film industry, with fashion shows and pageants. I also coach both new and seasoned models and actors into successful careers in the business. In addition to this, I work as an actress and model myself, so I stay current on the ins and outs of the business.
Having a good mentor is so important. I navigated through the business on my own and learned a lot the hard way. I wish I had a mentor when I was starting out.
With passion and a bit of know-how, you can have a successful talent consulting business. I booked my first job on the first day I was signed with an agency, so I know quick success is possible. I was immediately more successful than I had imagined and I knew that I was in the right place, doing the right thing.
The best part of my job is that it is so much fun! It provides a lot of freedom and a nice work/life balance. You can continue to work in this business through many different seasons of your life. I had other jobs before entering the entertainment field, but nothing compares to it. I look forward to helping more and more people accomplish their dreams.
