Introduction: I'm an actor/director/coach from Detroit based in Rockford, IL. I worked and lived in NYC for 11 years where I studied acting at Marymount Manhattan College and The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I have also trained privately with some top acting/speech coaches like Dennis Hilton-Reid and Thomas Rene. I teach audition technique workshops monthly with The Family Repertory Company where I've worked for the past 6 years as Resident Actor/Director/Instructor. I have had the great pleasure of performing abroad (Athens, GR) and locally, gracing the stages of some of New York’s most beloved theatres. I've worked alongside actors like Norbert Leo Buts & Shaquille O'Neal, and have done (and continue to do) my share of short films, commercials, audio series, and music videos. My biggest bragging point (let's be honest, that's what this is. Lol!) Is getting to work with Tony Award winning Broadway Director Kenny Leon at The Public Theatre on HOW BLACK MOTHERS SAY I LOVE YOU

Had a great first session with Darius! I love his positive energy and personality he brought to the table. He was kind and answered all my questions, before starting on a monologue. I could tell he truly wants to help aspiring actors. I appreciated how he really took his time to break things down for me as a beginner.

So far I’ve only had one session with Darius and it was so valuable. In the short time we had together, he made me feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable and open. Being a beginner, he eliminated my fear of embarrassing myself and provided a lot of resources and techniques to use going forward. And all of that was provided in his FREE trial session. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from him.

FAQs

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

    Your first session is ALWAYS free!

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

    We always begin with either a monologue or whatever piece they’re working on at the time of our session. We’ll work through the process of analyzing a script at first and move on to incorporate speech, movement, and imagination strengthening exercises. I guide the actor through the entire process from page to stage (or screen).
