Who We Are


Judy Twine Brinn

CEO | Creative Director | Emmy Nominated

Regardless of what people say, first impressions are crucial, no doubt about it. And when it comes to first impressions, makeup is definitely a girl's best friend. As a celebrity makeup artist I know this quite well, in fact so well, I started my own line of products Take 5 Cosmetics.

Fact: Everyday, whether it's fair or not, we as individuals are thrust into the spotlight and judged within the first three minutes based on our appearance alone.

At The A List, my team and I know how to create a look that exudes confidence for each individual, and that is what Take 5 Cosmetics is all about. My cosmetic line is a chance to share my secrets and tips with every starlet out there, all designed to bring out the celebrity in everyone!

Michael Brinn

CFO | Logistics

I am very excited to serve as CFO, Head of Logistics, and Team Safety Officer for The A List. A native Michigander, I attended Michigan Technological University. After graduating I was recruited by the United States Marine Corp, in which I enlisted to proudly serve our country.

Upon receiving an Honorable Discharge, I then began a 27 year long career in management with the County of Los Angeles. During my military training I acquired a broad range of skills that included CPR, safety and lifesaving procedures. I've put these skills to use often, one particular time to save the life of a popular actor who collapsed on set while filming a commercial in Idyllwild, California.

Because of my managerial career, and the fact that we serve our clients on location, I find it important for The A List Artists to routinely see demonstrations, and discuss lifesaving and safety procedures.
