Alerte, Carter & Associates welcomes three new clients to their roster for 2009-2010
Stylist duo Poodle Pusher, Actor Anthony Gurino, and TV Personality Brooke Jasmyn
Poodle Pusher is a Wardrobe and Fashion Stylist company founded by sisters Chichi and Ogo Offodile. Their core objective is centered on successfully carrying out lifestyle changes and transformations through renewing the image of their clients. The idea of Poodle Pusher isn’t just about a lady walking a dog, it signifies more- her lifestyle, prestige, finesse, class and self awareness. A poodle is the pet of her choice only because its habits and aura mimics hers. Originally hailing from France, Poodles are known for their dainty walk and meticulous grooming, as well as their popularity with royalty, it's no wonder that this stereotype has been perpetuated for several centuries. The Poodle carries itself in a proud manner, and is considered dignified!
Anthony L. Gurino sites his “unwavering passion for the arts”, as the major focal point for his redirection into acting. Anthony began attending acting school when he was 9 years old and booked his first acting job portraying a Homeless Boy on the CBS Episodic “The Equalizer”. Anthony developed his craft attending many different programs in NYC but is most proud of his time learning the Meisner Technique with Mr. James Brill at the Legendary Neighborhood Playhouse. He also credit’s the New York Film Academy with being influential to his career.
Anthony has credits in over a half dozen films which include the 2007 mega blockbuster, “American Gangster” as well as “The Equalizer”, “Mercy“, “Just Like Joe“, “Eddie Monroe“, “This Thing of Ours“, and the upcoming film “The Sinatra Club”.
Anthony’s film career is on the move, he is slated to appear in the following films and has been cast in, “The Disciple” (2010), “Exit102” (2010), “Pablo Escobar” (2010), “My only Son” (2011), and “Charlie Lucky Luciano”(2011)
Anthony is a proud breeder and owner of Thoroughbred race horses and runs his horses under the moniker, Red Storm Stable.
Brooke Jasmyn grew up in Baltimore, MD and was exposed to the best and worst of city life. The city would provide Brooke a passion for culture, music, and the outdoors. She would provide the city with entertainment. The diversity of her background would allow Brooke a very diverse view of people and life – but most importantly a confidence in herself that she carries with her today
Immediately out of college Brooke moved to New York City to pursue a career in television. She temped at TV and Film powerhouses like Miramax, CBS, and eventually her permanent home at Viacom. Brooke landed her first permanent career opportunity as the Executive Assistant to the EVP of MTV News, Documentaries, and Specials. She would later become the Series Associate Producer for the Emmy nominated series, True Life.
A co-worker at MTV thought Brooke had an interesting story to tell. The concept was to profile young, urban, working socialites from various backgrounds. Brooke was asked to shoot the pilot as one of the cast members - she agreed. In the spring of 2009 - eight young, attractive, working professionals debuted the reality show we know as “Harlem Heights” on BET Networks. The show allowed Brooke to tell her story and show the world who she was on her own terms. Brooke plans to continue to tell her story as a prequel to Harlem Heights with her best friend Briana in a book titled Faded & Jaded, Vol.1 which will chronicle their friendship, trials, and tribulations by sharing intimate diary entries and e-mails literally from the first day they met.
Harlem Heights and Brooke’s forthcoming book are just a few ways she has introduced herself to the world. No longer a behind the scenes girl, Brooke plans to stay in front of the camera for a long time – stay tuned.
