I love coaching actors - it's the reason I believe I succeed as a teacher and director. Every actor is unique, therefore subscribing to ONE doctrine doesn't work. My own acting method is very eclectic - drawing from Meisner, Stanislavsky, Adler, Hagen, Chekhov, Meyerhold, and more. I practice BOTH inside and outside acting techniques. I love voice and movement work. So, really... I say beware of acting teachers and coaches that tell you there is only ONE way to do something, or that their "method" is the RIGHT method. Run. Away. Quickly.

I love coaching actors because watching the "aha" moments are absolutely joyous. I will tell you the truth about what I'm seeing, and I'll do it in a tactful way. I will work very hard WITH you to make your performance stronger. Come to me with monologues, sides, and character work. I am looking forward to working with you!
