At the age of 17, Annie began working as an assistant at a boutique talent agency, while she finished high school. Annie learned hands on how to run an office, nurture clients, read material, pitch clients and make deals and discovered a true passion for the process. Since then, Annie has worked as an associate producer at Paramount Studios on a variety of sets, such as Gary Marshall's sitcom "Happy Days". Two years later, she was hired by Nicole David, one of the owners of Triad Artists, which became one of the most powerful agencies of its time. Working with Jenny Delany in the television department, Annie witnessed hands on the start of many of today’s superstars, including, Bruce Willis, Mariska Hargitay, William Hurt, and many more. After working at JS&A for a year and a half, Annie opened up her own agency with a partner. They combined genuine enthusiasm and energy for the business and a similar work ethic and origin was born.
