About uS!

We’re a food-centric talent and media company

whose purpose is to connect culinary personalities to national brands, events, and on-screen opportunities


Michael Rizzo launched Personal Talent and Media Group in 2018 to bring a mix of talent management, marketing, branding, and media creation services to culinary talent while providing unparalleled professional service to national brand and event partners. 

And it all started in a Mexican restaurant about halfway through a burrito and a couple of margaritas!...
