The Company

LocalTalentNYC is a locally based company geared towards aspiring artists. This site is made to be a tool for connecting and networking with others in their field, along with providing information and connections to those who can help turn your dreams into reality. We cater to every artistic field there is including but not limited to actors, singers, dancers, writers, musicians, etcetera.

Along with promoting your talents, our goal is to provide a means of bettering careers, of getting more connected to inside information and a place to come to meet new and prospective colleagues. A place where you all share one thing in common- you came here "TO MAKE IT." NYC is full of aspiring stars, it’s time for you all to meet! Everyone wants to be in the right place at the right time, this is a place to help make that happen.
LocalTalentNYC is updated daily and offers an array of items specifically to help each and every member. Promotional profiles are created for each member and categorized in their field of creative expertise, making it convenient to connect with others in your field. Profile changes & updates can be made anytime by sending a chat message or emailing us. Members’ up-coming concerts/shows/events will be posted in the “Events Calendar” for all to see and attend, and daily reminders will be posted every morning as well. In addition there is an Inspirational Column, Q&A Café, Local Business Directory & Reference List and a Late Breaking News section where recent members’ successes are announced.

The Inspiration

For the past 15 years I’ve worked in a number of restaurants from Long Island to NYC. Throughout these years numerous friendships have been formed with my fellow employees who all happen to be striving artists. In the hospitality industry the people you work with tend to become more than just colleagues, but family. This is what made it so heartbreaking when I began to witness this “DOWNFALL OF PASSION” in them.
Artists have an amazing drive when they do something they love and it truly is inspiring, but watching the passion slowly erode in their eyes has always bothered me. I see them consistently getting lost or caught up in the game of struggling to get by: connecting with the right people, going to the right seminars, attending the right shows, floating resumes all over town, going to every casting call
possible, demo gigs, practice, dress rehearsals, meetings, on top of supporting themselves with paying jobs, paying bills and so on, and so on and so on…It gets pretty drowning.  Many of my friends eventually ended up moving away or going back home with the attitude, “Well I tried, now back to reality.”  So I decided to do something about it and help all of my present and future friends and family better their careers. As we know networking is an absolute imperative for any and all successful business, no matter the field.  I suddenly realized what was missing for my friends: a proper tool to get their name out, a tool for the most important ingredient of success- a networking tool.

The Vision
LocalTalentNYC is just the tip of the iceberg on where the future of this company is heading. LTNYC will eventually be a subsidiary site to a complete online network.  The network itself will be known as “”, where the NYC link will become “”. The goal is to connect every major city in the U.S., and eventually expanding overseas. This will enable unlimited networking and connection possibilities for members/artists across the world.

A native New Yorker, Todd has worked in a variety of positions in real estate and mortgage lending, along with both management & head-serving positions in numerous restaurants where he has brushed elbows with up and coming artists and burgeoning superstars alike.
