Introduction: A lot of people call themselves actors but don't actually act, so first off, good on you for reaching out and taking your career into your own hands. I've been a working actor for over 15 years. I was classically trained in NYC at The Circle In The Square Acting Conservatory and am currently based in Los Angeles, California. I love every aspect of being an actor, from the rehearsal process and class, to showing up on set, researching a role, to the array of actors that I've worked with and how the work gets my creative juices flowing. It's been a rollercoaster of a career but I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Having said that, coaching was not something that I set out to do but has happened rather organically. And this may not be what you want to hear, but to this day I still don't consider myself a coach. I see myself as an actor that loves to share my knowledge and experience with other actors so that they can live truthfully under imaginary circumstances. Should we end up working together I would be coming from the place of a peer instead of a teacher or coach. There are so many teacher/gurus out there, and I believe you can learn a ton from them, but I have no interest in being praised by the actors that I work with. I refuse to play status and look at our work as two actors looking for truth. I can give you a scene but I won't pretend that I will have the right answer as to how to tackle it. There are of course infinite ways that a human being could approach a situation. But I promise that I will ask you questions that will get your imagination firing and your instincts pumping so that you can make what feels like the best choice for that moment and truly live the life of the human who's shoes you've stepped into. I cater my coaching and pricing to each client's individual needs. More experienced actors often contact me to work scenes for auditions and to also act as their reader. For others that are just getting started or would like to keeps their instrument sharp I develop on-going curriculums based on the goals that we determine together. Either way, I'm excited by the opportunity to be your acting peer and truly help you grow as an artist and a person.

Jeff is really amazing to work with! He knows what he's talking about and gives you constructive criticism. Not only do you focus on acting, but he also makes a note to focus on your overall wellbeing. I feel like I learn something new about myself every session. It's definitely a great overall experience.

Jeff isn’t someone who does his hours and then clocks out. He always looks to help you out and take you on a journey. For me, he is always responsive and I can talk to him like we have a special relationship rather than me just being his client. Jeff’s passion for acting makes this experience with him even more special. He will always look to make you better and will guide you every step of the way. If I could start this journey again, I would still pick Jeff 10 out 10 times.

Coming from a background with zero experience, Jeff has been the perfect catalyst for starting me off on this journey. Beyond Jeff’s endless advice and industry knowledge. He is responsive and personable, it’s easy to form a connection with him because of his encouragement. I can tell Jeff really wants me to succeed in the industry. I highly recommend reaching out if you want to build a strong acting foundation or sharpen your acting skills!
