I am so excited to have created this Ecourse with Dana and Lisa, and to be able to share it with YOU!
I moved to NYC right after graduating college. My first job was as an as a TV agents assistant at CESD Talent Agency in NYC. I handled scheduling models and actors for their auditions, arranging booking, and helping scout new faces for the agency.
I loved that last part the most, scouting new faces that is why when GSS Casting asked me to interview to be an assistant casting director, I jumped at it.
The rest is history. GSS eventually became known as Godlove & Co: and I eventually became VP of the company. We were a boutique agency, but known worldwide for casting models for high profile advertisers, and brands: Pantene, Hugo Boss, L’Oreal, REVLON, OlAY, Calvin Klein, just to mention a few…the list goes on.
Casting models, coaching models (began teaching classes for models in 2002) and helping models BOOK jobs is my passion!
I started my casting career working with Jodi Collins Casting in NYC working on all kinds of cool projects: The Chris Rock Show, Strangers With Candy and the original Budweiser “What's up” Campaign.
In 2001 I became a freelance casting director and was introduced to the world of model casting. I learned from the best in the business how to shoot beautiful casting videos. Godlove & Co. Casting was the top beauty casting office. They worked on tons of campaigns and commercials with the biggest names in the business. There I discovered my love for working with models, making them feel Comfortable and Confident and looking beautiful on camera.
It was at Godlove where Colleen and I began working together. She was instrumental in my training with models, and shooting beauty casting videos. We both loved working with models and were known for making them feel special and taken care of. I can’t tell you how many times a day we were each told you guys need to teach, and show models all the tools & techniques that you know @Oncamera Coaches was born….
..and this Ecourse is so Special to me because, as a Career FORD Model.. I took Colleen and Dana's ON Camera TV Course in their NYC Studio way back in 2000!
After I learned to be Confident and Book the Big Jobs, I went on to do just that - shooting over 100 TV Commercials and Videos.
I Loved being on set for TV commercials that I knew I wanted to create something online to Help Models Get Trained and Become More Successful!
I Started my Model Career with Ford Models and traveled around the world. I loved being a model and I always knew I'd become a Model Scout. I Founded Mugshot Management, a Talent Scouting & Management Agency in NYC in 2010. Ive had offices in NYC, Los Angeles and now Boston.
Today I manage many top working Models and Focus my time Creating Ecourses for the Modeling Industry. Everything about the Modeling Business is my passion and I can't wait to Help You Achieve Massive Success in this Exciting Video Driven time!
"Do you teach a class?” Models would ask us this question over and over again, so when we started On Camera Coaches in 2002 our goal was pretty simple.
There were NO on camera classes In NYC specifically tailored for models and we decided to change that. We wanted to give models the specific tools they needed for castings and take the mystery out of the audition process and give them the confidence they needed to book the job. When you know what you are doing you have the confidence to for GO FOR IT and do it even better.
Fast forward… That first class of 10 models would eventually turn into training thousands of models at our studio in NYC, and coaching models, actors, celebrity personalities, and influencers for various projects, interviews and appearances.
Training models is our specialty! We LOVE what we do, and we also have so much fun doing it! So don’t just wing it! We created this Ecourse for models everywhere!
We want to give you the support and training you deserve. We are so excited to help you build the career you want and to become a more Successful Model!
