Casting Director Aaron Jacobs did not mean for this to happen. What’s that about two roads diverging in yellow wood…?
With over 17 years of experience in the entertainment industry, he began as a professional actor at the age of 17, working in feature films and TV before being hand picked as one of the 12 members of the first Postgraduate class of the Acting Program at LIPA. He also spent time training at the famed Moscow Art School in Russia (ask him about the many creative ways to eat cabbage and tips on avoiding machine-gun toting mafia members some time).
Upon returning to the States, he switched hats and trained in the fertile IT field of Washington, subsequently becoming a Consultant and Project Manager in Marketing and Client Relations for 5 years with Microsoft. During this time he co-founded Reel Extras, which exploded into the largest background-casting service in America outside of LA and NY. Soon clients started asking him to cast their principal roles, and well…he hates to disappoint a client.
Aaron's background in acting and the world of high tech allows him to see what you need and understand how to get you there quickly. Aaron finds it thrilling to introduce clients to the amazing talent pool in the Northwest. His rapport with actors is unparalleled, and he is known for hosting a warm room, guiding actors to present their best performances, giving his clients the best choices available for their production.
