Introduction: I invite you to reflect on these questions: - What really matters to you? - What challenges are in the way of you achieving what matters? - Would you like some help with that? Send me a message. Let's start a conversation. The coaching I offer addresses several areas, including public speaking, communication, voice work, presence, breath, anxiety & stress resilience, leadership, and professional growth. My aim is to support and empower you in your work. Having a coach is often the first bold move in creating a better outcome that otherwise would not have been realized. I coach clients for development and transformation, as well as target their specific needs. My approach is highly individualized, and is deeply rooted in curiosity. YOU are the primary focus, and your needs, as well as current abilities and challenges will determine our path forward. I have been a voice and communication specialist for over 15 years, coaching speakers and performers in New York City, Los Angeles, Sarasota, and online. I was also an actor for many of those years, appearing Off-Boradway and on film and television. My background as a performing artist and a voice and speech coach gives me a unique perspective on how to cultivate presence, a nimble and expressive voice, and to communicate what really matters with clarity and intention. I hold a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting and am currently earning a Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology. I am a Certified Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®, and a member of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association, Screen Actors Guild, and Actors Equity Association.

OMG! Where do I start. If you are planning an important project or need to just get better with public speaking, or any speaking, Michael is your guy!!! Just after one session I noticed such a difference, and i he doesn’t just give generic advice like eye contact etc, he makes the shift internally! A much more long term and effective method. I cannot recommend him enough! I plan on working with him continuously for my challenges and he is such an asset, and improving your own voice and speech skillset is invaluable as well!

It was great working with Michael to, as he put it, take my pubic speaking to the next level. Very helpful feedback on the value of the downward inflection and maintaining eye contact. Certainly helped boost my confidence in just 1 hour. Thanks Michael!

Working with Michael has been great! I was looking for someone to help me "find my voice" and optimizing my delivery for podcasting. Michael has tools to help with the physical and mental pieces as well knowledge and exercises for specific areas of delivery. We've worked on physically "opening up the flood gates" in my face, mouth, throat, tongue, etc). Then talked about the mental aspect - feeling nervous, turning it into generative energy, honing in on speaking to "one person." Finally, working on specific exercises on inflection that are tailored to me. Michael has a very warm, welcoming and encouraging personality. He brings a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm to each session. I look forward to them when the pop up on my calendar and I'm becoming more confident and effective on podcasts.

In one hour he was able locate and explore where my fear of public speaking comes from. His exercises opened my eyes to what happens to me when the anxiety takes over, as a result I now have a way forward to conquering what has held me back for so long. I will continue to work with him to reach my goals. I HIGHLY recommend him!

FAQs

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

    I offer a sliding scale to my fees when needed. It's on the honor system, so no explanation is necessary.

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

    I like to spend some extra time during our first session to clarify your goals and direction we can move toward achieving them. I will ask a lot of questions and my intent is for you to get a feel for what the work will be like and whether we are a good fit. This can last up to 30 minutes and is not charged in addition to your session fee.

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

    I hold a Master of Fine Arts degree in Acting from Florida state University. I am a Certified Teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®. I have performed Off-Broadway at the Roy Arias Theatre and at Sarasota's Asolo Repertory Theatre.
