Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.

I was offered full rides to Yale, NYU, and UCSD and earned my MFA in Acting from UCSD in 2009. Since then, I've guest-starred and recurred on 20+ network TV shows, led several films, performed on Broadway and at the top regional theaters in the country. I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University and NYU.
Whether you're looking to learn the fundamentals of acting, sharpen your auditions pieces for BFA or MFA programs, or book more professional gigs by improving your self-tapes and in-room auditions for every medium, I will deliver for you.
I love helping actors grow as much as performing myself. Together, we will bolster your imagination and toolbox to arrive at further truth and dynamics in storytelling.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

Speaking well all starts with proper breath coordination. As a voice major I understand the inner workings of how the voice works, and the proper way in which to speak without strain. Often people speak on a "vocal fry" this is the gargly sound that is very low in the speaking register, not only is this bad for your voice it also doesn't make a good impression to employers or during an interview process or public speaking event. I encourage even my voice students to recognize that habit and break it in order for their singing voices to grow.

If you are interested in improving your public speaking skills, or feel strain when you speak for extended periods of time, it is worth considering taking vocal lessons because without this proper technique severe damage can occur to your voice.

Evelyn H.
My name is Evelyn and I'm 33 yo. I'm also transgender MTF and have always wanted to sing with my new voice. Jordan is incredibly patient and shows a lot of care for what I have tried to accomplish. Without her I would have been too afraid the let my singing voice be heard. I'm so lucky to have found a professional like her to help me find my singing voice during the journey of my transition. I highly recommend her to anyone who is new to singing or wants to improve their existing voice. She's worth every minute.

"I was recently in a play titled “Why Does It Hurt So Bad?” with Tamika as an Artist Development teacher. She was extremely helpful when it came to knowing how to project your voice, emoting and becoming the character that you are portraying. Tamika was very professional and she always helped wherever she could. Tamika always gave great advice and how you can improve your craft as an actor. Everyone in the play took note of what Tamika was saying and applied it in the next rehearsal, getting better and better every time. This is the reason why the play was so successful. I will definitely keep in contact with her to keep perfecting my craft and to see if there’s a way that I can take acting lessons from her. Thank you so much Tamika. You’re AWESOME and so TALENTED!"

"Ms. Mozhgan Hudiburgh, or Mojy has a lot to share with her students. She is very energetic, polite, friendly, classy and flexible. She taught my daughter "Belly Dance" and "Persian Dance" in a very short time and in the most fun way. She knows a lot about the culture, dance, music, religion of both American and Persian/ Mediterranean people. My daughter loves her a lot and she wouldn't change anything about Mojy and she wouldn't replace her with anyone. She has already learned a lot from Mojy. Mojy is very nice to kids and understands the kids' world. Mojy teaches the dance using the folklore terminology of the dance and music. She translates the songs into English for us to have a better understanding and feeling of this rich cultural dance and moves. She has her adorable own-created moves . We enjoy being around her and her teaching style. I am going to learn Persian and Mediterranean cooking from her, too. :-)"

She encouraged me to audition for the stage play "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and I made it in. She continued to work with me as an Artist Development teacher in the play. She really helped me as an actor and teaching me to take on the character I was portraying. It was amazing seeing myself grow as an actor and getting better during the whole process.
