My one-on-one coaching sessions are great if you are just starting out, preparing for an audition, or just want to fine-tune your skills. My acting classes are always small and give you an intimate opportunity to work with and learn from other talented actors while still benefiting from my one-on-one coaching. My goal is to give you the personal attention, acting techniques and career guidance that you need to reach your full potential as an actor.

Programs :

I offer the following services for adults and children, beginners to professionals:

- private acting lessons
- group acting classes
- industry consultation
- on-set coaching

Some of the most popular methods I teach are:

•Stanislavski
•Method acting
•Brechtian concepts
•Chekhov
•Meissner
•Classical technique
•Viewpoints
•Adler

Out of this diverse training, I developed the method that I use and teach called Modern Thought®. I believe that no actor can be confined to just one of these older methods in today’s acting world and that is the core idea of Modern Thought, it blends old methods with the tools needed to succeed in today's Hollywood. These older disciplines all work well to capture the essence of a role and bring out powerful emotions but each actor learns and works differently and can benefit from slices of each. My method teaches a blend of all these methods tuned to my student’s specific needs and learning style. I like to help find what makes you unique and to explore which ways of thinking work best for you.
