I specialize in coaching actors for auditions for film, television, agents, casting directors, theatrical performances or drama schools. Whether you are starting out on your journey as an actor or already have extensive experience, together we will make your audition distinctive. You may need one or two sessions to prepare for a self tape, or to work over an extended time to craft a role for film or theater. I will be there, in your corner, to help you focus your creativity and be successful. I will help you define the specific situation of your character; and ask you provocative questions to help you journey deeply into the role. We will find the key to tapping into your own life experience to bring the role to life. In addition, I can give you tips on setting up your home studio. The industry has changed dramatically in the past two years. SELF TAPING your auditions and submitting the digital media to casting directors, agents and film producers has become the new standard way to audition. I have an MFA in Drama from The Actors Studio Drama Program at the New School in New York City as well as 25 years of experience as an actor in theater and film. I look forward to working with you!

Prepping an audition for an upcoming show or for admission into an acting program? Want to hone and develop your audition monologues (especially Shakespeare)? Just need a coach to help you take your acting to another level? Then let's get started, online or in person. I can help. I've been working as a professional actor in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. I've performed with the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, ACT Theatre in Seattle, Book-It Repertory, Seattle Shakespeare Company, and Shakespeare Santa Cruz to name a few. I've also been the featured voice in voiceovers for companies like University of Washington Medical, Golden 1 State Credit Union, Microsoft, and Surface Pro 3. On Camera Credits include short films, industrials, and commercials for Taco Time, Tulalip Casino, and Washington Dental Association. I hold a BFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and an MFA from the Shakespeare Theatre's Academy for Classical Acting in Washington DC. My training includes a wealth of acting techniques (Stanislavski, Meisner, etc.), movement, and stage combat, with a focus in particular on voice and text for Shakespeare. I've conducted interactive workshops on Shakespearean Acting (including stage combat!) across the southeast while on tour with the North Carolina Shakespeare Festival's Globeworks Program. I've also lead workshops at the West End Studio Theatre in Santa Cruz while performing with Shakespeare Santa Cruz.
