After working in commercial casting in Los Angeles for several years, Carinne relocated to Chicago to be the Midwest manager for Casting Networks and is committed to making the online casting process a helpful tool for talent, agents and casting directors. 

Teresi was employed by Showfax and Breakdown Services for over eight years, which gave him a unique look at many aspects of the entertainment industry and a better working knowledge of how talent agents and casting directors operate. In 2006, Jason became the director of regional services for Breakdown Services in Chicago.
