4 A Star is a talent management, special events and promotions company. We do everything around the arts.

My focus is building connections everywhere I can, so when there’s a place a client needs to go, we have the connection for it.

We also handle models. We have a partnership with a pop culture magazine out of New York called Foxx Code.

I love the partnership because it gives my models a chance to be seen. It’s national in seven cities. I had four locals written up in the last issue and have four in line for consideration for the next issue in the fall.

We’re in the process of opening the publishing end of the business to give independent authors a place to get published locally. We’re going to offer book-signing locations with their package.

We have a big fashion event coming up at the end of the month. It was designed to give models a runway opportunity. We have some models with experience but a lot of them are new.

For this event, we have an up and coming Philadelphia designer presenting his Ursule Bada Collection. He’s handmaking 20 looks for the event and they’re gorgeous.

We’re also opening up the show to about six local shops who are making cameo appearances with their clothing.

We also have a famous handbag designer, Debbie Brooks. She was just on “Shark Tank.” She’s coming from New York to dress the show with her designer bags.

The show will be in the Showboat Foundation Room from 6 to 9 p.m. March 29. Tickets are available at www.4astar.com.

Entry: I have 30 years in the entertainment business. I had a successful Tupperware business for 18 years.

I decided to take all of my experience and roll it into this business, doing this for the arts and representing people in a positive light.

Future plans:  I have two Stockton College students — Darnley Rosius, of Galloway Township, our talent manager, and Brian Nuge, of Ventnor, our general manager. He’s looking to take the business to the West Coast in three years.

They are growing into the company as part of their training. They both have other jobs and they’re doing very well.
