He then moved to Vigliano Associates where he gradually started representing his own projects. In 2008, he joined Endeavor which the following year merged with William Morris. He stayed at WME for five years before joining Janklow & Nesbit.

In nonfiction he works with leaders and journalists in the areas of science, business, culture and current affairs. He’s also known for representing pop culture, in particular music and comedy.
