Tyler Browne

Head of Development, Manager

 

Tyler Browne has been a Talent Manager since 2012. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Browne created Kindred Talent Management, a boutique developmental talent company by “walking through the steps of an actor”, inspired by her two daughters who were forging their own way as entertainers. As a performer since age 4 which included professional dancer, actor and singer, Browne longed to become the talent manager she always wanted, balancing equal parts hands-on support and industry insight.

After four years, she would merge KTM into Dedicated Talent Management owned by Matt Prater, who shared a similar philosophy and performance background as a former successful actor.
