Work with me one-on-one or in small groups up to three on Zoom or in my home studio. I will teach you how to analyze text to serve the story, develop character that's authentic to you, and to find your creative process to build the confidence necessary to nail any audition.

 

Want to improve your actor materials? Need a second look at your self tapes, headshots, resume, website, etc.? I consult too.
