The thing that separates me from the rest of the guides you will find on this subject is that my knowledge and experience comes from the Private Security field...specializing in "Undercover/plain clothed" investigations, leading to professional level proficiency in Human Behavior and Psychology.

In my brief existence on earth, somehow, all of my interests, flaws, and experiences fit together like a puzzle and have lead me to the point where I can understand Human Behavior and Psychology fluently....raising me to a life of leadership.

How did I end up directing Actors?  I was searching for a more positive expression for my knowledge while still supporting peoples life goals.  This search dropped me down a rabbit hole of research including method actors, and eventually Stanislavski's system, and the great Uta Hagen which shocked me.... until that very moment my life experiences resembled many aspects of these systems without even knowing they existed.

Since then, I have chosen ...

About Omar

As with anything else I teach It is important to understand the fundamentals and then gain knowledge from those experiences onward. Learning and enjoying anything depends on practice experience as well as separate tactics that cause you to be unique and create an advantage only you have.

Omar is an awesome instructor to teach on Method Acting.He understands the student aspiration and train accordingly.he motivates the actor with his excellent advises and provide inspirational thoughts to the actor.I am sure he can make best actors/actresses/artists through his own specific ways of method acting skills.thank you Director:).
Craig
When I first began my search for an acting coach I was stressed out because I knew I needed help but I didn't know how to start. Luckily I found the Director, Omar. The Director began by interviewing me to see what my goals and potential were. He then developed a specific lesson plan designed around what he called "The Fundamentals" and I progressed since then. Now after a few months of the Directors support, I know confidently that I am an Actor. I learned things about human behavior and method acting that I couldn't find in any video or online source. The Director somehow made things simple to understand and I'm glad for it. I am not done with the lessons, but since he has supported me and shared his knowledge, the least I can do is share my experience. Thank you Director!

Nicholas teaches from the heart with clarity and expert knowledge. After working with him I felt so prepared and confident. Would highly recommend!
Steve
Nick is an excellent teacher. He has already improved my creativity and communication skills so much in the few sessions I've had with him. I've been able to step outside of my comfort zone and am a better actor for it. Thank you Nick for such encouraging words and your kind spirit. I can't wait to work together again very soon.

Nicholas is fantastic! He is encouraging and knows exactly where to push to get that bit extra out of you.

"Chrystie is an amazing instructor! She is very enthusiastic, encouraging, and worked with my daughter's energy level. She used music appropriate to my daughter, and built up a routine over several weeks so my daughter could learn the parts. She made effective and efficient use of every minute of every lesson and appropriately pushed my daughter to learn, even though it was her first time taking tap lessons. I highly and ecstatically recommend Chrystie really to anyone because I am sure that fun, bubbly, energetic personality, combined with a high skill level, and excellent instructional strategies, can really help any student.
