About the Guru

Paulo Andrés has been a talent manager since early 2002 handling actors across the board from developmental clients to series regulars. Some of Paulo’s clients include: long time actor Peter Riegert, Shalim Ortiz(HEROES), Marlene Forte (TYLER PERRY’S HOUSE of PAYNE), and Ethan Erickson(Melrose Place). His hugely successful commercial client Chad Brokaw is well known as the loveable “CHAD the Alltel guy”. In June 2004 he formed a partnership with Kurt Patino and opened LINK Talent Group. On May 1, 2008, with great anticipation, they merged with Rachel Rothman to create Rothman/Patino/Andrés Entertainment, expanding their collective company to include production development. Paulo started out as a performer himself, graduating from St. Edward’s University with a degree in Directing followed by a move to Los Angeles. In 1993 he joined The Actors’ Network and committed himself to its growth and expansion. In 1996 his devotion culminated in full partnership where his dedication to each member and his knowledge of the business transformed The Actors’ Network into the leading organization for the working actor that it is today. Paulo’s desire to assist actors in their careers was the passionate catalyst in his transition from actor to personal manager. He currently serves on the Century of Compassion board – an organization dedicated to making our current century the most compassionate and peace filled time in human existence. He speaks across the U.S. on the business of acting. In 2009, he cycled for his third time, 545 miles from San Francisco to L.A. in the annual AIDS Life Cycle fundraiser. He has also run 5 marathons.
