Helping juniors, seniors and recent college grads get hired in their first jobs and internships in the entertainment industry since 2015.


About Me

My mission is to help launch the most valuable startups in the world: Young careers.

I help college students and recent grads land their first jobs and internships in the entertainment industry!


As a public speaker and private coach, I’m here to help young adults make the transition from student to working professional with confidence. I’m an expert in finding what makes each person unique and aligning that with job opportunities.



Join me and up to 10 subscribers for my monthly COFFEE WITH KP! It’s our chance to meet in person in Beverly Hills or online for a virtual informational meeting. I take the first ten mins to share tips on getting hired and the remaining 50 mins are for you to ASK ME ANYTHING (think: resumes, interviewing techniques, networking, etc.) It’s super fun and you get to connect to other like minded 20-something entertainment industry job seekers. Click below for the schedule and how to sign up.


Calling all juniors, seniors, recent college grads, and 20-somethings looking to work in Hollywood … college may have taught you the skills needed to perform your first Hollywood job, but it didn’t teach you how to land it. If you’re ready to get your parents off your back and start putting cash in your pocket, then my online Intensives are just for you!


Perfect for college students or recent grads who is committed to a long term career in entertainment and is looking for expert guidance in securing an internship or entry-level job. Choose the highly personalized private coaching program that is right for you.
