Hello! I'm Dominic R. (though I'm commonly known as "that guy" to very close friends) and I'm an artist. I'm an actor, teacher, singer, comedian, writer, graphic designer, and a really, horribly novice ukulele player.

I. LOVE. ACTING. And I love sharing my passion for that with other people, actors and non-actors alike.

In my acting coachings, I utilize many different exercises to make sure that each student has the knowledge and techniques required for them to feel completely, fearlessly themself. Every artist approaches their craft differently, but in acting, honesty is everything. Together, we'll discover what that means for you and how to make you shine your brightest light on stage or on camera.

Topics Include:
On-Camera Acting
On-Stage Acting
Musical Theatre Coachings
Audition Prep
Comedic Writing and Performance
Cold Reading Skills
and more!

I'll show you how to develop a character or read a scene with another scene partner and I'll make the training fun! I'll help you choose good monologues and show you how to "cold read" a dialogue at an audition. Based on my education at Columbia I have lots of techniques to offer! If you want to you can bring a scene partner, otherwise I'll read the scenes with you.
