Drew Doyon is an actor based in Los Angeles, CA and the Founder & CEO of UpCast - the first mobile app that digitally connects models and actors with productions through the entire casting process. He moved from Danbury, CT to Los Angeles eight years ago to pursue modeling and acting which led to discovering there were real pain points in the industry no one was addressing; wasted time and money for both sides of the table.
Experiencing the frustrations of castings first hand, Drew decided to merge his two passions to save everyone in the industry much needed time and money. Modeling for brands like Red Bull, Pepsi, Skechers, Guess, REI, and others allowed him the flexibility to teach himself to code and learn the ins and outs of marketing while working with several startups in Los Angeles.
Soon after raising startup capital, Drew successfully launched UpCast on the iTunes App Store. He created a comedic promo video showcasing the app and highlighting industry pain points that went viral on Facebook. Drew is a lifelong learner who believes education should be free and vacation should be mandatory.
