Recap of Events
Recap of Events
With my Bachelor's degree and MBA from NYU and a successful career in finance under my belt I ventured into the world of content production for ABC with illusionist, David Blaine. It was during this time that I developed strong relationships within the NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL and NASCAR and began procuring celebrity appearances. In working with the New York Knicks in this capacity, I realized the marketability of athletes - especially with the advancement of digital and social media.
In 2009, I joined forces with Michael Heller to launch, Talent Resources Sports, mirroring the successful formula of "employing powerful, media-driven celebrity and influencer-based campaigns and experiences" in the sports realm.
I currently lead all athlete-driven enterprises, focusing specifically on endorsement deals and international campaigns. I continue to work closely with renowned athletes and their teams to secure appearance opportunities, endorsement agreements and sponsorship initiatives. With a savvy eye for marrying brands with top-tier talent, I have been instrumental in facilitating the mainstream crossover of several elite athletes across the boundless range of sports. With my international background, I have enabled Talent Resources the access to expand its reach across industries, borders and cultures.
I started my career in entertainment law (NYU Graduate; Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law) where I oversaw and negotiated many opportunities for brands to garner celebrity support.
I realized that there weren't many active facilitators that were bridging the gap between brands and talent. Not just talent, but those that were previously vetted and willing to align their likeness to a specific category.
With my specific legal focus on celebrity appearances and endorsement deals, I advanced my skills in negotiation and determined how to fairly help both the brand and the talent. I noticed a clear disconnect between celebrities and the brands that were specifically trying to garner their endorsement.
Since 2007, our agency strength lies within our network, our wealth of knowledge and expertise derived from their various backgrounds and experiences within the industry. We are able to take those experiences and package our services in a way that is unmatched and all-encompassing for our clients. The manner in which we operate allows us to fully understand the complexities of what it takes to continually foster a healthy marriage between brand and celebrity. Once partnership opportunities arise, we are flawlessly able to create alliances in an organic manner.
After receiving my bachelors degree in Sport Management from UMass Amherst I carried my passion for sports and athletes to Talent Resources Sports. I gained the knowledge, experience and ability to lead through many sports driven internships most recently at The Legacy Agency.
Here I spearhead the day to day operations for Talent Resources Sports. I work with both brands and athletes always looking to maximize exposure for both entities. I help control the team producing events at the Super Bowl, NBA All Star Game, and the ESPYs where we again look to bring brands and athletes together in an organic way.
I have spent many years in the broadcasting and media industry building strong personal relationships with everyone from managers and publicists to athletes and celebrities themselves. With my unique experiences and passion for pop culture and sports, I help brands maximize their exposure and impact through a wide range of marketing campaigns.
From a very young age, I have been infatuated with sports. After receiving my bachelors degree in Journalism with a minor in Sport Marketing and Management from Indiana University, I realized that working in sports was my true calling and found myself at Talent Resources Sports. Here, I work on the day to day operations for Talent Resources Sports. I work alongside Jake Nussbaum to help produce events at the Super Bowl, NBA All Star Game, and the ESPYs where we again look to bring brands and athletes together in an organic way.
