I want you to have time to create freely, however this may best suit your career and lifestyle. I believe strongly in the need for creative and artistic people like yourself in our communities. The benefits socially, personally, and frankly culturally are important, and I want to support your efforts to contribute. When you share your goals with me, I hear MORE than your desires for financial success. I hear someone who has maintained a part of our childhood wonder and honed that skill. Your imagination is a gift, it’s been molded, shaped, and formed over many years now and our society can in turn be positively impacted by your dedication to your craft.
Your SUCCESS, however you define it, is my goal. As an agent I research and connect with opportunities in line with your aspirations. I will make every effort to do the legwork and research necessary to propel your career forward. I’m here to make connections and negotiate opportunities on your behalf. Moreover, I’m here to have the conversations you don’t enjoy or struggle with. I want our working relationship to feel like you have a personal assistant ready to catch whatever weight of your workload you need or want to pass onto someone else.
The major shift I strive to achieve for the artists I sign to CPM, is REDUCED STRESS. Stress appears for everyone in different forms, which is why I cater my services to each artist individually. Some require networking or logistical problem solving. Others need help managing finances and pricing. It truly depends on the artist, but I’m here. I have an editor and graphic designer who work with me regularly to provide assistance to CPM’s signed artists as needed. I have your profiles and artist statements edited and our graphic designer creates professional collateral (postcards, books, hand-outs) so you are presented to the world with the best possible professional image.
Before closing this letter, I’ll share my biggest underlying motivator. I will push for BREAKTHROUGH MOMENTS for each artist I sign. This is my elixir. It’s what my mind creatively hunts for and is focused on. I want to celebrate these moments with you! I can see these moments unfold for each artist I sign.
All of this is to say, I care. I care deeply about our work together. I know the patience and hard work you’ve put into your career up until this point. I’d like to help bring upon the next phase of your career and in the process make the struggle to get there less tangible.
