Working with my colleagues in talent management, agencies as well as publicity is usually wonderful energy. I respect the work ethic of my colleagues. I take a very hands-on approach, as many managers as well as agents do, in order to nurture talent, keep them booked as well as raise their profiles. I suppose an aspect that will might make me somewhat unique is usually that will I like to explore some other areas of the business, including producing. We’re always learning as well as evolving.
