Introduction: $15 DISCOUNT OFF YOUR FIRST SESSION :) I became SAG within my first year of acting. In this amount of time, I have managed to receive network credits on ABC, Netflix, Hulu and TheCW. I have several audition rooms that I frequent. I have had the gift of "booking the room" since my FIRST audition. I've also booked national commercials, and now direct my own projects including music videos. The actors that I have coached have booked and received callbacks. I have a way of helping to make your audition or selftape stand out, by making strong yet smart choices. I am patient and passionate when coaching, and I like to werk in a fun, free and nonjudgmental environment where we can both be comfortable. Things I assist with: I specialize in scripted Theatrical TV & Film. I do not coach for commercials unfortunately.

Phire is a spectacular Acting coach. She is not only extremely supportive, but she also establishes a very comfortable, open, and non-judgmental environment for Actors. I feel I’ve learned so much about myself already as an Actor and performer. She’s so dedicated to her craft and has so much experience in the industry. I’d recommend Phire to any Actor looking for coaching! She’s absolutely phenomenal!

I had my first session with Phire a couple days ago and it went amazing. I already learned so much about acting and built up my confidence thanks to her. I never acted or had any type of training, so going into it I was super nervous and had no idea what to expect, but that quickly went away. She was really good at explaining things in different ways if I didn’t quite understand the first time. That helped me go through my own journey to develop my character and learn to be more natural with it. I wasn’t sure what my future looked like with acting, or if I wanted to pursue it further, but after talking with Phire I feel very motivated about continuing my journey and i’m very excited for future sessions with her!

Phire is an incredible listener. That was probably what I first noticed about her. That and her enthusiasm, which was palpable even over the phone. She is very encouraging, funny, and made me feel very comfortable during the lesson. I definitely felt supported and valued.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is $75 per hour. I am offering a $15 discount off your first session with me, making your first session $60. Starting off, most sessions are around an hour long.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My typical process is to first see where my student is currently in his/her acting. Then we move at his/her pace, while at the same time incorporating my knowledge and tools as a coach and actor. I make sure to check in with my student as we grow their experience.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been training since beginning my career in acting. I train with Wendy Davis of Army Wives and Love Is... and Max Decker's MAD Acting Studio. I have been a part of the entertainment business since 2010.
