Introduction
Hello! Congrats on your interest in becoming a stronger performer & creative artist! Like in any kind of strength training, your acting & audition muscles need to be kept fit for strong performances. I work one-on-one with a limited number of performers who are serious about their interest in acting & growing their skill set. Whether you’re new or advanced, we'll have fun (in a non-judgmental environment) with personalized sessions starting where you're most comfortable and then strengthening you as a performer with confidence & technique. I coach exclusively ONLINE over Zoom to utilize the camera in my coaching and to help with comfortability in front of a lens! Script analysis, character choices, emotional tools, and pacing will also be important points of our practice & character training together. Headshots, agent relations, self-tapes, audition techniques, on-camera skills, and industry woes (that aren't always talked about) will be the technical side of acting that, along with your character training, we'll blend to create confident, authentic, & role booking work! As a current working actor myself, for my own performances I pull techniques from my years of Los Angeles training that are the most natural for me. I have always felt it's important to develop a formula that works for YOU, and with my help you'll develop your own "emotional tool belt"! If you’ve booked a role or have a college, theatrical, or film audition coming up & are looking for help shaping your character & rehearsing, I’m available for that as well. *Please know that I do not consider myself a public speaking/product demo/interview/singing coach. I coach performers as “characters other than themselves” in the art of storytelling scenes, monologues, & commercials. If you are not looking for that type of coaching, I would look for a public speaking coach so you can build the specific skills you need! ABOUT ME: creating art on camera & on stage has been a pursuit of mine since the age of 7. After 6 seasons recurring on ABC's hit sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, appearances on NBC’s The Jay Leno Show & in dozens of national commercials & stage shows, I pride myself on bringing talent, experience, professionalism, & fun to all my coaching sessions! Thanks to 19 years in the Los Angeles film scene, I'm savvy to current audition standards, self tape techniques, performance styles, & am a proud member of the professional actor’s union SAG-AFTRA. I truly enjoy helping creatives train for their own artistic goals…so…now is the time! Let's strengthen your techniques and get you BOOKED! 1 HOUR CUSTOMIZED PRIVATE COACHING SESSION: $80 *Please note: I don’t do preliminary get to know you calls. I feel the best way to get to know a coaching style is by doing, so that’s what the first session is all about…getting to know each other, talking about performing and the industry, and doing some acting work so I can see where you’re at in your performance and you can see what my coaching is like! 🎬

Y’all in just two sessions I already feel I’m stepping out of green actor territory. With her help I established some character types, l got some great insight on the business and even sharpened my self tape skills. So what are you waiting for, to sign up for her service now. I promise you won’t regret it
