Sports have always been a big part of Eddie Kim’s life. Growing up, he was a successful student-athlete who engaged in swimming and ended up swimming and attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York and ultimately attained his undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California.
And now, his career is still inclined with sports as he runs his pro sports and talent agency.

In a short amount of time, it has carried out tour management for global artists and represented and worked with many up-and-coming stars in the industry. Eddie is more than just a sports agent and is a former US Army Captain.
Members of Big Game Management come from all over the United States, along with professional basketball players, TV personalities, recording artists, and influencers from all over the globe. You can see his basketball players in the world famous Drew League in the summer and some of his TV personalities on VH1.
Change of Course
The turning point in Eddie’s life was the last swimmeet of his swim career at the annual Army-Navy dual meet at Annapolis, MD. Eddie fell into depression and felt he was lost in life. During that difficult period, Eddie pivoted his life from athlete to former and prepared and planned his life after sports, which he highlights as a crucial point of an athlete’s journey from a mental health standpoint. The journey during that transition is what led him to be a Master Resiliency Trainer and a Suicide Awareness officer in the US Army. He continues that journey today with members of his agency and the youth.
