Founder, Borra Garson, has been in the agency business since 1992 and solidified her reputation in the celebrity chef world early on by representing Gary Rhodes and Jamie Oliver over a number of years. Borra heads up the publishing arm at DML, runs the day to day business and continues to work with numerous top chef names including the unstoppable Tom Kerridge. Her favourite part of being an agent is that no two days are ever the same, and she enjoys the challenges, the variety, and the people aspect of the job. Originally from Canada, Borra is a huge fan of cooking and she chose this shot – a typical Montreal street in mid-winter.
