Hey, I'm Jess

I’m dedicated to helping creatives build the career they want


For most of my professional life, I’ve helped creative people make money and build the business they want.  I’ve worked alongside photographers, directors, CGI, animation and digital studios to help them with their sales, marketing, and creative.  I was an agent for 10+ years with Hesty Reps, Kith & Kin, Germaine Walker, and in-house at Thinkingbox. Before I fell into repping I worked as a photo producer and editor. And at one time was a photographer myself.

I once found this list outlining ‘What is an Agent?’, it read ‘Sales Manager, Marketing Manager, Social Media Manager, Therapist, Translator, Editor, Project Manager, Guardian, Business Owner and Negotiator’.  With all these different hats it’s important to me there is a foundation of trust, integrity and listening with whomever I am working with. I want to make sure it’s a good fit, we understand each other, and there is a natural trust.  In this relationship, you have many difficult, sometimes vulnerable discussions.  There needs to be no judgement just showing up and moving together to get things done.  It’s important to me the artist feels seen, heard, and is getting what they need.

When I’m not working, I’m likely in Trinity Bellwoods with my dog, Gracie, or spending time with my ridiculous group of friends who love travelling, rallying together, and enjoy both of these things even more if they can do it in costume.  My obsessions are design, interiors, flower arranging and learning. My other love is my partner Derek. I don’t have to tell you how great he is, everyone else will.  He’s that kinda guy.

A Few things to note

I'm candid

Put it this way, if you ask me if your bum looks big in those jeans I am going to find the nicest way to suggest a different pair. A high standard of work and integrity is what will make a difference in your career.

We are going to make real change for you. Some change will be simple and get results right away, others may require some patience.

You do the heavy lifting

We will work together to figure out what you need, but the age-old saying applies ‘you get out what you put in’.
