About Me

I experienced life in Hollywood attending the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and it shook my world in not only the craft of acting but also that passion is key in pursuing this field. Because when success in roles doesn't come your way, you are still satisfied with your choice of occupation.

Personal Experience in Theater:

Several roles played at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in 2003
Performed in two local improv groups 2003-2005
MP role in "The House of Blue Leaves" in 2005
Manolo Costazeula in "The Odd Couple- Female Version" in 2010
Lenny Ganz in "Rumors" in 2012

*** Lesson Details ***
Through experience in drama school and additional time spent learning the craft, I believe I have learned what it takes to teach the craft with passion. With emphasis on objectives, improv, and being in the moment, certain techniques will be employed to enhance believability.

There is no one true path to learning the craft. Every teacher is different as well as any student. And every teacher that doesn't learn from their students are well. just teachers. As any craft/skill-based action, people are all always learning regardless of your position. There is no right way or wrong way of teaching but only a deeper understanding of what is possible.

As actors, we hope to dig down deeper. To open ourselves wider. It's like a muscle. Keep exercising it and we find "muscles" we never knew we had.

There are a variety of techniques that I have been taught. These are the basics of the craft of acting.

These are not film-based nor theater-based acting. It is understanding how to respond and learning how to be in the moment.

About Me

I have almost 6 years of tutoring and over 9 years of adult training experience (with a certificate in adult training). Since middle of 2009 I have been involved with various Vacation Bible Schools, child care programs (at a church), and helping them learn / play sports.

Not only do I have my own business in tutoring / mentoring students and training adults, but I have also worked for two different tutoring companies and have received a part time position as a Youth Services Teacher for my local city to help teach drama, sports, crafts / hobbies, tutor / mentor in various class subjects, etc.

My church organization has its volunteers pass a child safety program called Shield The Vulnerable (which I have passed and have a certificate on file). Also, I have been fingerprinted for tutoring / childcare services and hold a clean background.

With two MBAs, one with an emphasis in health care management, and a BA in Liberal Arts, I am well-versed in study habits, learning new techniques for students with attention disorders (I too have ADHD).

Students love me and enjoy having the "ah ha moments" when I am teaching / mentoring them.

About Me

I have been a University and college professor on and off over 17 years. I left the academy to do professional theatre work at the rank of associate professor. I am going back to teaching in Fall 2015, but in the interim, thought independent teaching might be interesting. I am a proficient teacher in all of the areas I have listed. As with most theatre professionals (especially actors) My experience with cooking is practical- I learned from industry people.
