Ellysa Rose

Executive Director - LA Office

Ellysa runs our LA office. An actress and musician in her own right, she also coaches clients when time allows.

After watching CATS, the musical, at the tender age of three, Ellysa proclaimed that she was going to "do that" when she grew up.  Fulfilling the prophecy, she attended the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy High School, where she received a scholarship for acting, before making the move to LA. She is represented by Milton Perea and Nicole Jolley at AEFH and managed by David Kohl of The Kohl Group.

In addition to acting, Ellysa is a Singer-Songwriter and producer. Originally from Michigan, Ellysa grew up living and traveling around the world. While it was a great experience, getting to visit more countries than most adults do in a lifetime, making new friends only to leave a few years later was not always easy. Music was the only friend she could pack up and take with her. Her original songs are full of insightful lyrics and memorable melodies, and she's often compared to the likes of Ed Sheeran, Joni Mitchell, Coldplay and Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine). Her debut single and music video, “Content With a Memory” and second single, Be Free, garnered critical acclaim and, combined, have over a million views.
