Brandi England

“The greatest feeling I've ever experienced was telling someone what my big dreams were, and then finding out they had the tools the help me achieve them. I want to be that person for everyone on our roster"                                                                       - Brandi England  

Team Lead & Principal Agent (West Coast) 

   Growing up in Vancouver, Brandi was surrounded by the film industry, with many of her friends developing successful careers as actors, producers, writers and every position in between. For Brandi, film has always been a passion and influenced many of the entrepreneurial endeavors she would launch in her early career. At 16 she was chosen to represent Canada as a youth ambassador in Brazil, it was there that she found her true love for inspiring people. 
   After completing her time in Brazil, Brandi continued her travels around the world and visited more than 20 countries over 8 years. Some of her travels included teaching English at one of the premiere Medical Universities while translating for a Brazilian aeronautics company in China. During her time in Caribbean, Brandi worked for the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, traveling all across the Caribbean performing improv, theatre, and live comedy, alongside Marty Allen, one of her longtime idols. Performing in front of hundreds of people every day gave Brandi a strong appreciation for the art of performing. 
    On her return to Vancouver, Brandi started on plans to launch her non-profit organization, a dream she had since she was a teen. This passion led to the founding of “Teen Wealth”, which is an entrepreneur program that is geared toward helping people develop a sense of self-worth. The success of this organization led to Brandi being invited to speak on behalf of her team at the annual Leap Conference hosted at UCLA. Not long after, she caught the eye of Kevin Harrington (Shark Tank) who published a complete article about her success and charitable work in his business magazine, The Big Pitch. 
    As an expansion of her non-profit work, Brandi launched “All-Heart Talent” which was an initiative that allowed her to combine charitable endeavors with her love for entertainment. “All-Heart Talent” hosts events around North America where industry professionals can mingle and discuss potential job partnerships. All proceeds from any commissions resulting in these events and subsequent contracts go to charity. These combined experiences and individual growth made Brandi the perfect person to lead the Ignite team. 
   Brandi is excited to represent our roster of diverse talent and guide their careers in Vancouver’s dynamic entertainment industry. When she isn’t busy supporting Ignite Artists, you can find her as host of Voice America’s Teen Wealth Radio, overseeing her non-profit Global Teen Wealth or serving as community liaison for Mind the Bar – a local mental health initiative. 
    Brandi’s love of helping others achieve self-worth and their life goals made her a natural fit to sign on with Ignite.
