"HUGE Thank you to the BEST agency ever, Gage Models and Talent for making my dreams come true when signing me a year ago! And thank you Sarah Merrell for referring me! It is so super crazy that I have come so far in a year! From television shows, to commercials, print ads, and Fashion Weeks on the runway, not to mention the training! If you want the best folks, this is where you go! I can't wait for the many more years to come! I love you all! #teamgage "
"I am in love with Gage. I feel they prepared me exceptionally well to get started in this industry, and the training courses were amazing. I learned so much and my instructor was amazing. Even afterward, she still stays in contact with the models she has taught and is more than a teacher, but a friend. I sped through my training courses and signed my 3 year contract not too long after. Within 2 weeks, I was booked on a paid modeling gig. Rachele and Jamie find all kinds of opportunities for their talent, and not only support you on a professional level, but a personal one as well. Every week, we also have countless opportunities to submit ourselves for other castings on the website. I couldn't be happier with my choice to come here, and it has positively impacted my life, self-confidence, and social networking skills. Not only that, but on my very first shoot, I met my favorite photographer I have ever worked with! He was amazing. They work with the best photographers and hair and makeup artists! I highly suggest Gage!"
"Gage Models and Talent has done wonderful things for my modeling and acting endeavors. The staff is great to work with, they work very hard for their talent. I'm very grateful to them and highly recommend Gage!"
"I have been a very happy client of Gage Model and Talent Agency for two years now. They are absolutely amazing at what they do. Through the years I have worked with other talent agencies that never went to bat for me once. Understand I am a 39 year old actor and nowhere close to a model...that did not stop Gage, they didn't shut the door in my face and laugh.
Infact they dug in and saw where my talent lay and have continually has found me work since. If you believe in yourself and have talent in any way, shape or form, do yourself a favor and contact Gage Model and Talent Agency. Trust me, your time will not have been ill spent."
"Gage supplies my events with models and they are always top notch! I tell them what I'm looking for and WOW, they over deliver each and every time. I've made friends with many of these models over the years and several of them have moved on to bigger markets with bright futures in the industry."
"I love Gage Talent!!! Being from Knoxville Tennessee and living and working in Hollywood, Gage Talent provides people the opportunity to be seen in larger markets as well as booking their talent across the country and locally. Jaime and her staff are my favs! They are the best for anyone looking to work or get into the entertainment industry."
"In the industry of modeling, acting, showbiz in general, making it to the top isn't done by selfish work, cocky attitudes, nor individual agendas. It's all about teamwork.
Teamwork with a group that works hard for you, stays up at late hours, and gives you big opportunities. Going to NYC has honestly changed my life and I feel so good about joining this industry. I am so blessed to have the team that I have. So thank you, all of you, for your love and hardwork. #teamgage I'm on fire and ready to run with the blessings I've been given!"

Actors on TV shows that I watch. It's so awesome. We are all cheering each other on, and a day doesn't pass in which I haven't talked to someone.
I've been blessed with so many opportunities and I can't wait to see where I go next. I'm right where God wants me and it's all in his hands. He put me with great people, and it's because of these great people that I've had the opportunity to go here there and everywhere. Jaime and Rachele one can't find the correct words of appreciation to truly thank you, but you've both changed my life in an inspiring way."

As a kid I dreamed and I'm still dreaming. So I've decided to throw a bunch of memories together. Yeah I've gained weight, cut my hair, and had eye surgery, but one thing remains true and that's who I am.
I love and will always love, I fight for others and I'll never stop. I adore the magic that goes into the industry I'm in. I truly thank every single one of you that's been so supportive and loving. I leave for NYC this month and I'm so excited to see what's next.
