After ten years as a successful actor, having appeared Off Broadway, on numerous soap operas, in various films and in over 200 television commercials, Jeff decided to pursue other opportunities in the entertainment industry. After working as a casting assistant at Deborah Brown Casting, Jeff left that position to establish and run the voice-over department at Kronick & Kelly, one of the largest talent agencies for young people (now a division of Abrams Artists). Jeff has a bachelor’s degree in acting and psychology from New York University.
In March of 1986, Jeff established J. Mitchell Management, a personal management company for representation in film, television, theater and commercials. At that time, Jeff was the youngest talent representative to own his own company. Since then J. Mitchell Management grew to be one of the premiere talent management firms in the country representing artists in both NY and Los Angeles. Jeff relocated to Los Angeles to drive business expansion and client services in the heart of the film and television industry.
