Hi, my name is Essia.

I am a freelance talent manager that has an Art and Entertainment management diploma from Capilano University in North Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I gained extensive event management experience from working in a theatre in my hometown Tunisia and Vancouver. Also, the first year of my program exposed me to a broad range of topics such as survey of the arts and entertainment industry, computer applications, production and design, and record label and festival management. I excelled in these classes and as a result, I was given a very high-grade point average. I’ve had the opportunity to work directly with several artists in the industry including Sarah Slean, Charlie Hunter, Carter Mclean, Brad Mehldau, and John Hammond.

I am also familiar with orchestra and theatre presentations and worked on the following productions: Viennese Masters, Anne of Green Gables, Midsummer Night’s Dream, Peter, and the Star Catcher and Grand Hotel.
