Introduction: SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY! Thumbtack charges me every time someone contacts me. Please DO NOT contact me unless you are truly interested and serious about working with me. PLEASE READ MY PROFILE THOROUGHLY BEFORE CONTACTING ME. Update: ***January 2023**** My students this season already have BFA and MFA callbacks to ⭐️DePaul University’s Theatre Program ⭐️PACE ⭐️UCSD ⭐️University of Houston (ACCEPTANCE!!) ⭐️Boston University ⭐️NYU ⭐️USC (BFA) YALE SCHOOL OF DRAMA CLASS OF 2017 *1st Generation Colombian-American *Fluent in English and Spanish 🇺🇸🇨🇴 MY SERVICES include… • MFA & BFA Audition Prep • Theatre Audition Prep • Self-taping (ON-CAMERA) • Private Acting Lessons— (Theatre, voiceover, film/tv — Technique) • Personal statement & resume review for drama school applications • Long-term creative mentorship & guidance Need a Mentor? Mindset & Motivation? Method? 📚 You’re in the right place. 📈📊 WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED… but MY RESULTS INCLUDE… - In my FIRST coaching season, my MFA students have gotten acceptances to the NYU, Juilliard AND DePaul University MFA programs, with FULL scholarships 🤩🥳 - my self-tape clients have gotten callbacks to theatre houses all over the country including Soho Rep in NY, Arena Stages in DC, Paramount Theatre, Teatro Vista in Chicago, Geffen Playhouse in LA, Classic Stage Company in NY, Westport Country Playhouse and Yale Rep in CT 🎥 ON-CAMERA EXPERT 📷 My approach to on-camera is an integration of all the various experiences I've had on set and with the Michael Chekhov technique, a body-led experience. I believe in releasing your CREATIVE INDIVIDUALITY, having FUN, surrendering to acting as a FULL BODY EXPERIENCE even if they're only looking for "head & shoulder" framing. I'm compassionate, extremely perceptive, and will always challenge you to move out of your comfort zone. In addition, I've worked 18 weeks with Brittani Ward, a freelance casting director in Chicago, and taken multiple classes with on-camera king, Bob Krakower. 📚BFA & MFA JOURNEY📚 I PROVIDE… - completely personalized curriculum based off you and the level you are working at - application strategies regarding your overall presentation, your statement, and your monologue selection - a regular, flexible training schedule that works for you and keeps you accountable This process is about you learning to work towards performing at a high level. Coaching only when you have an audition the next day is not the same as coaching regularly to keep developing your craft so that when opportunities come, you feel confident and ready. The power of developing a relationship with a mentor in the arts, especially if you are not already immersed in a school program, can be utterly transformational & life-changing. I know it has been for me and my clients. ABOUT ME… Hi!

While I haven’t worked with Sebastian for a long time, I know that I’m going to. Within the first lessons he gave beautifully constructed criticism, offered resources to utilize outside of class, and put a strong value on the work this profession requires. Wonderful!

I contacted many of the acting teachers on thumbtack, but Sebastian’s profile, his transparency with his experience, and overall generosity was very difficult to ignore. The quality of his service is very high, and if you have one session with him you will, as I did yesterday, want to keep coming back. His passion for the art, but also his knowledge of this industry is vast. After our 30 min consultation he already knew what course to take with me and shared resources with me that are not only about the art of acting, but truly fascinating. Don’t be intimidated and don’t overlook the opportunity to work with Sebastian. He’s a very warm person. Good heart and he’s very thoughtful. Be prepared to look at yourself and grow.
