I've been in LA over 20 years. I graduated with a BA in Theater and Film from University of Southern California. I'm a member of SAG; having appeared across countless television series as co-star, guest-star, recurring, and series regular. I'm an award-winning actor and producer. I've had films at Sundance, Tribeca, Seattle Film Festival and many others. I starred in and produced CIRCLE, a film I sold to Netflix. Most recently, my series DARK/WEB premiered on Amazon Prime. We were also invited by San Diego Comic-Con to present an official panel to fans last summer. I have worked with most of the reputable acting coaches here in Los Angeles and have accumulated the styles and techniques I like best from each to synthesize my own approach. I am a graduate of the Groundlings School of Improv and Comedy.

As someone who has no experience in acting, Michael made learning the basics feel easy & intuitive. I learned so much in just a short amount of time thanks to Michael's guidance.
Abigail M.
Hi my name is Abby. I started taking classes because I want to make my own movie and star in it. I know for me to get to that goal I need to acquire the knowledge and skills of acting. Mr. Nardelli is teaching me the fundamentals of acting. To date, my range has thoroughly improved since day one. I can’t even believe my own progress. He pulls emotions from me and shows me how to use them through my acting which is amazing. Mr. Nardelli works with me for things that I need to improve and extracts things out of me that I didn’t even know I had. I truly enjoy the classes and wish I would have done them sooner.
Amy K.
I've always wanted to explore acting, but I honestly didn't know where to start! I wasn't looking to start a career as an actor, I just wanted to learn the basics. I had absolutely no experience whatsoever but I reached out to Michael and asked if he could teach me 'acting 101'. My experience working with Michael was absolutely amazing... he walked me through the beginner's steps and worked alongside me so I would be comfortable. He was very patient and used layman's terms to explain things for me to understand. I know Michael is an established actor and has been for a long time so, his meeting me at my level was so helpful and appreciated. I feel.... from working with him, I am ready to take my acting to the next level and for the first time in my life, I actually entertain the thought of it being a career choice for me.
