Connor has been an active and working model in the fashion industry since the young age of 11. He attended a modeling school where he learned everything about the real world of fashion modeling: proper runway technique, posing/angles, lighting, and make-up application.
After spending time in NYC and LA, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting and modeling where he spent the next 8 years working on commercial print ad campaigns, co-starring on network TV shows, and even appearing in several movies.
Eventually, his passions were directed more at helping others like himself achieve their own career goals in the entertainment industry. Katrina brought Connor onto her team because of his experience and extensive knowledge of the industry.
He believes in a personal and proactive style of representation, where he can help guide guide actors in the right direction, to insure that their career goals are achieved. Coming from the other side of the business where he was the actor/model, he is empathetic and understands the actors/models wants/needs in their representation.
