"I coach performers, actors, singers, dancers, speakers, and writers to find their greatest creative expression. I have over 20 years experience teaching acting and directing productions professionally and at over 15 universities, colleges, and conservatories across the United States and abroad. I hold MFA, MA, and BA degrees in Theater/Interdisciplinary Arts, as well as memberships in SAG/AFTRA and AEA. Additionally, I am a licensed Spiritual Practitioner, helping artists find greater creative insight and freedom. I grew up in the New York theater, and Method Acting was a calling, a lifestyle, a spiritual path to artistry. So, my foundation is the Stanislavski system, but is also eclectic, celebratory and physical, as Stanislavski himself advised us to never stop growing. I’ve learned to incorporate things I’ve learned through years of studying martial arts, yoga, Suzuki, Lecoq, modern, jazz and African dance, and voice. More than anything, I teach acting as an art of joy, discovery, discipline, and wonder; with the intent to facilitate transformations and spiritual growth in individuals. Also, to prepare artists for the rigors and vagaries of the industry. I love seeing students on film and television, but more than that, I love the palpable feeling of freedom and epiphany when a student expresses openly and honestly. I most enjoy helping others become more expressive and empathetic beings. I know that everyone has something unique to offer, with latent talents and capabilities beyond what is generally recognized or accepted. I feel that acting is a spiritual skill we are born with. I have literally hundreds of techniques and exercises culled through my years teaching to help any performer unlock their greatest creative gifts. I love being a coach and have mentored countless students who've won entry to prestigious graduate programs, conservatories, or go on to have careers as working artists and/or found their own arts organizations. Nothing gives me greater joy than to witness someone transformed and empowered through the acting process. Please take me up on my offer of a free online mini lesson/conference to experience for yourself why I am the coach for you!"
