"Our philosophy at TCA Jed Root is simple: pick up the phone," said Christian. "Don’t wait for it to ring. Concentrate on shaping careers, instead of just moving clients from job to job. Lastly, it’s important to have fun! We only take on clients we’re passionate about. Both Jed and I love what we do."

Christian has nearly 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry and is a veteran of both Peter Strain and Associates and Don Buchwald and Associates. Throughout her career, she's worked with  prolific Oscar winners and nominees. Root also has offices in Tokyo, Paris, London, and of course New York. Christian and Root first came together as agent and client, found they spoke the same language, shared a similar aesthetic and launched TCA Jed Root.
