David Ziff is the VP of the On-Camera department at Cunningham, Escott, Slevin & Doherty, aka CESD, which is one of the top commercial agencies in the country. David got started as actor in NY. He then became an assistant at The Gersh Agency here in Los Angeles. From there, he worked as a theatrical agent at Susan Smith and Associates. He has been at CESD for almost 20 years. He worked his way up from an on camera agent, to Senior Vice President. At CESD, he and the other agents deal with around 70 commercial casting directors. He is very actor friendly and very selective when choosing clients. He finds potential clients through managers, showcases, casting director referrals, etc. CESD actors are fortunate enough to have booked many jobs over the years.
