I've graced the stages of some of NYC's most beloved theatres including; The National Black Theatre, The Public Theatre, 13th Street Rep, and HERE Arts Center. I can be seen in a number of films, commercials, and music videos alongside the likes of Shaquille O’Neal. I’ve performed worldwide in places like Athens, GR. I have worked with world-famous directors like Broadway's Kenny Leon and Dennis Hilton-Reid, and received training from some of the world's top acting institutions (The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, CalArts). I have directed regionally and in New York, I teach regularly with The Family Repertory Company (Where I have served as a resident actor and director since 2016), and have students spanning the globe! I strive to acquire as much knowledge about this craft as is possible and to share that gift with the world. A wise man once told me, “The only reason to act is that it hurts too much not to.” I am a highly engaging and truly devoted teacher. In every session, we will work on a scene or monologue and you'll be guided through the entire process of acting. Learning script analysis, character development, imagination strengthening, audition technique, expressivity, mastery of the mechanisms of the body & voice, and confidence like you've never known!

Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more. For beginners who are simply interested in trying something new, your creativity is your GOLD, and I am excited to work with you as you treat yourself to exploring the world of storytelling and as you honor what YOU have to say. Time to leap!
