Location: Washington, DC

Current gig: President & CEO of 3 Kings Entertainment, LLC

Current computer: iMac 27-inch

One word that best describes how you work:  Always 

What are your favorite Apps that you can't live without?

Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and I listen to Pandora when I workout.


What's your workspace like?

Clean and organized. 

Besides your phone and computer, what gadget can't you live without?

iPad and now more importantly the iPad mini (mostly to keep my almost 2-year old daughter happy) and my remote control to my DVR's so I can keep an eye on all of my clients. 

What Music are you listening to? 

In the car it's XM Satellite Radio and it's tuned into the Message on channel 63 (love Christian music).

What's your sleep routine like?

Lately it's asleep at 11:35pm right after my wife Jan Jeffcoat's news broadcast on WUSA and up at 7am with my daughter Kana Zen Kingsley.

Best Advice you Ever Got?

Playing it safe is risky.  Be Fearless.  

Best Thing About your Job?

Playing an important role in the lives of my clients by helping them orchestrate their television careers and reach their ultimate dream whether that's landing at a network or a big local market job. There's nothing more gratifying to me than feeling like I added a little value in the development of someone's career success. I love the people I get to represent and many become like family to my family. I feel blessed to be called their friend, agent, mentor, advocate, manager and at times even their therapist (you know who you are). But frankly at the end of the day my clients are the ones who make me look good.  My youngest brother Seth, a comedic writer in L.A. and also Ryan Seacrest's longtime producer for E! News, always tells people I have one of the best jobs in tv because "I get to do deals in my underwear and on the golf course, sometimes both at the same time." 

Worst thing about your Job?

Never really being able to turn it off.
