About Us

Lana and Catherine

We are a new San Francisco bay area based model + talent agency.  We specialize in representing VO talent, real people, real families and children.

Voices. We are not afraid to take on vo talent new to the industry.  We represent voices that people enjoy listening to.  Voices that have the ability to turn off their “sales mode” and turn up their “people person” voice.

Real people. Our collection is eclectic.  We have surfers, ballerinas, bloggers, fly fishermen, extreme skiers, world class chefs, sailors, race car drivers, triathletes, breakdancers and curling champions.

Families.  We believe in representing the diverse families that make up our society.

Children.  From babies to teenagers we have them.  They’re cute, they’re charming, and they come with  operating instructions (don’t we wish).


Lana Barkhordarian Burstein, Co-Founder / Agent

With nearly ten years experience as a broadcast producer, Lana has been working with casting directors and talent agents to hire talent for tv, radio and web spots for clients such as mini cooper, apple, dignity health and aaa. Her idea of a good time is listening to hundreds of auditions to create her “shortlist” for creative directors. Lana has earned a reputation at her past agencies for having an ear for vo and an eye for on-camera talent. Lana’s knack for finding the perfect fit, made her the “go-to” producer to take the lead on casting.

Catherine Brett Wold, Co-Founder / Agent

For over a dozen years Catherine surrounded herself in the public relations and television and marketing industry. She thrived on the fast pace nature of photo shoots, landing high-profile interviews and the occasional mingling with celebrities and athletes (ask her about the time she hung out with Willie Nelson on his bus). Fast forward a few years, Catherine was busy raising two little boys who were enjoying their forays into the modeling world. She was ready to start a new business venture that combined her love for the entertainment industry and connecting people.

The timing when Lana and Catherine’s paths converged couldn’t have been more perfect . . . And thus shortlist was born. Together, Lana and Catherine are committed to improving their talent and clients’ experiences through their passion for people, efficiency and drive. In addition to both having an affinity for faces and voices, they can often be found running the trails of Marin, mourning the loss of mill valley’s round table pizza or pinterest-ing.
