Originally from New York City, Ilko came to Los Angeles the old fashioned way- he drove across the country in a car that could barely make it, but he did. And on January 1st 1994 when he was on the beach in Venice tanning himself, he knew he’d never go back. Hollywood was calling. He toiled as a PA, driver and set worker on several films, TV shows and music videos over the years until he got his first big break: a full time job working for Steve Tisherman as an Assistant Agent. He did so well with the scheduling of the talent, that Steve promoted him to Agent in one year. He was responsible for booking, recruiting and hand holding of many, many VO talent. He placed talent in every field of VO- network promotion, film trailer, animated series, Video Games, commercial campaigns, audiobook and voices for toys- and both in English and Spanish markets! Within six years of this he and his partners bought Steve’s company and renamed it TGMD. After eight years as partner there, Ilko ought new challenges and had has been at AVO Talent for almost one year.
