Ike Zhang is an artist and entrepreneur based in Boston, MA. Originally from Toronto, Canada, Ike came to the U.S. to pursue his undergraduate degree at Amherst College. Having lived in Los Angeles working as an actor and screenwriter, Ike experienced first-hand the struggles and pitfalls that early stage artists go through. So in 2017, Ike co-founded the Boston Creative Collective, a creative talent management agency that helps to represent and grow emerging artists, especially those from diverse backgrounds. Currently representing 35 full-time artists and over 400 part-time emerging artists, the BCC has become a hub for up-and-coming musicians, models, photographers, cinematographers, actors and writers to gather and find jobs in Boston. Through artist business education and commercialization of their personal brand, the BCC helps incubate local talent and cultivate financially sustainable careers. Some of BCC's clients and talent have gone on to become contract photographers for Vogue and Paper Magazine, written and shot promotional videos for the record breaking Kickstarter campaign Sated, and designed for large multinational corporations! Ike still acts and writes, and is currently workshopping a few shorts and feature scripts.
