Hey There!

Thanks for stopping by! Let me introduce myself.  I’m Cynthia, and I am a talent agent in Milwaukee, WI. I coach talent, style photo shoots, and work to place models and actors/actresses in various parts of the industry within our local market. While there are plenty of challenges, agency life is a total adventure!!

My passion for the spotlight started when I was very young. Music was and will always be my first love. I graduated Carroll University in 2015 with my B.A. in Vocal Performance, and went on to sing as a professional chorus Soprano with the Florentine Opera Company. At the same time, I began coaching singers, actors, and models to embrace confidence both on and off the stage. From personal style to acing auditions, I quickly learned that I was passionate about helping people reach their full potential.

After two seasons with the opera company, I still felt something was missing. So, joined a pop/rock cover band called Down 2 Dance. With myself and four other talented dudes, we play all kinds of festivals and venues all over Southeastern Wisconsin. Singing in this band has brought me so many amazing experiences and memories, and I am so grateful to share the stage with these guys. Learn more about my band here!

My style is heavily influenced by stage life and girl boss beauty. For me, style has always been a projection of my fun (and often unconventional) lifestyle. I love looks that can lucidly transform from corporate classic to stage spotlight. It’s no secret that I love putting a modern twist on the classics, which I showcase throughout this blog!

I hope this blog becomes a home for you to get inspired to develop your unique signature style, and encourage you to embrace confidence as you step up to every spotlight in life. My blogs will give you some behind-the-scenes agency insight, giving you an agent’s perspective on what we look for in talent. I will challenge you just like our own agency talent by inviting you to take part in opportunities to get out of your comfort zone (even if you don’t have any experience!!) Be sure to check out upcoming runway and fashion opportunities in the Auditions and Events page.

Oh and hey…follow me on Instagram if you want to keep up with agency happenings, rock band shenanigans, and all the style that goes along with it!
