Her first speaking role was on Lifetime's Strong Medicine,

ABOUT CEASAR

Ceasar joins the TBA team after dedicating 20+ years in the fitness equipment industry.

As a former thrill seeker which included everything from Sky diving, bull riding, base jumping and anything else that gets the heart pumping, his most thrilling job came the moment his kids were born. 

As if being a dad wasn't thrilling enough, he decided to work with Actors!

He transitioned into the entertainment industry when he picked up a camera and took his first headshot back in 2013.  After shooting actor headshots for a few years through his company Face Page Photos as well as being the on set photographer for many local production sets, he decided to transition to a different side of the business.  He found himself wearing a producer hat for the first time when he executive produced the film B.O.O.S.T.  Since that experience, he has gone on to produce a few short films for CC7Day's local film competition.

We welcome his passion, optimism, positivity and dad jokes. 

He brings a sense of peace in an already chaotic business.

Ceasar enjoys discovering new talent and helping them transition into our agency. 

 

The only photos he takes these days are of his beagle Copper for his Instagram page:  @CopperBoy361.
