Being a teacher and professional film and stage actor, director and producer for over a decade I have the unique experience of knowing what it's like from both sides of an audition and both sides of a performance.
I will work with you, one on one, to prepare you for that upcoming audition or role. Perhaps you're just starting out in the business. Perhaps you've been acting for a while while. Either way, we'll work together and get you where you want to be.
We will work on every aspect of the process, including:
- Choosing the right material for auditions
- Auditioning for the camera
- Auditioning for the stage
- Performing for the camera
- Preparing for the audition
- Digging into text and making it your voice
- Improving your audition technique
- How to enter an audition room
- How to carry yourself in an audition

Actors are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, actors face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get "real" jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again. Every day they have to ignore the possibility that the vision to which they have dedicated their lives is a pipe dream. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life-the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. But they stay true to their dream, in spite of sacrifices. Why? Because actors are willing to give their entire lives to a moment--to that line, that laugh, that gesture, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul. Actors are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.
