David is very knowledgeable and gave my daughter such great advice and direction to work with. He broke down each line of her scene and the motivation behind it and took the extra time with her to make sure she understood everything and was delivering it naturally and effectively. He even spent extra time with her and didn’t finish the lesson until she fully got everything down. Very professional, fun, friendly and genuine. We’re so grateful we found him and she and I both look forward to her next lesson with him! We very highly recommend him!!

Hi! I play Marty on the Golden Globe winning show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. I am a graduate of The Upright Citizens Brigade and have been teaching improv for 5 years. Improv is an incredible tool for freeing us to build and find exciting choices in all our work. Whether you're looking to strengthen your commercial, television, film, theater or public speaking techniques, you'll soon love leaping "without a net".

About Hunter

From the hit TV comedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to drama at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a students development and their personal victories.
Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting as a passion or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

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 ...

About Jason

I've been performing roles in the theatre and on-camera for over 25 years. My BFA in Acting and Directing and my MFA in Classical Acting have afforded me a wide variety of tools and skills to employ in the craft of acting. Performing with professional repertory companies like ACT Theatre, Book-It Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the Shakespeare Theatre in DC, I've gained personal knowledge of the art, craft, and business of being a working actor, which I will put to work for you, in a personalized one-on-one coaching session, either online or in person.

Here's how I can help.

SCENE WORK AND MONOLOGUES: Whether it's dusting off and refreshing monologues you've performed more times than you can count, or developing pieces or scenes for the first time for an upcoming stage or on-camera audition, we can break the material down togethe

r, work on the clarity of your choices and active objectives, and access your personal connection to the material so you'll be ready and confident with a one-of-a-kind performance that reflects the strengths you bring to acting and the story you want to tell.

SHAKESPEARE: Perhaps the most daunting of styles for a contemporary actor, we'll get down to the nuts and bolts of some of the most challenging (and rewarding) material. The famous soliloquies are famous for a reason and can certainly be intimidating, and more obscure material can seem thick and inaccessible. We'll chip away at the mystique of Shakespeare by digging in to the text and verse, activating the language with specificity, and cultivating your personal take on well-known characters or lesser known material they might not have seen before.

DIALECTS AND ACCENTS: From English to Irish to Southern American and beyond, a well executed dialect can be the edge you need to land (and play) that meaty role. I use a multipronged approach that involves ear training to develop an authentic sound, text analysis for clarity of sound substitutions (IPA Proficient), and exercises that pare away stilted and unnatural speech to cultivate an authentic sounding voice that will be your own.

VOICEOVER: I've been booking voiceover gigs on TV, radio, and the internet for over 10 years with clients like Microsoft, Liberty Mutual, UW Medicine, Tableau, Reno Toyota, and Golden One State Credit Union. I can offer tips and tricks of the trade, as well as techniques that can take your VO submissions to the next level and help you book these lucrative contracts.

Let's get started!

Jason has been an amazing coach for my incredibly active animated son. He is great at redirecting my boy when he has trouble focusing and provides immediate feedback to help my son make progress. We live in a remote area where actives like this are not offered. We feel blessed that we were able to make a connection with Jason and for his patients with our rural island family. Jason it a true professional and communicates beautifully with me. I am looking forward to continuing lessons for my son!

Jason previously worked with my teenage daughter and they made vast improvements in her acting skills and college audition. She was accepted into AMDA. Now he is working with my older daughter to help her get ready to audition at UW and get a working reel together. He is fantastic and really good with any learning differences or styles that might come up.

Improv and comedy are a couple of my BIG favs! Improv is so freeing and is essential for helping the new actor grow. For experienced actors, it can bring your performance to life like never before and really help you break out of patterns that are holding you back. Together we'll play with some of the best improv techniques and I'll give you "home play", games and exercises you can practice with friends.

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work that stands out to casting directors & agents and to make self-tapes that shine above the rest.

I have spent more than 20 years working in the entertainment industry in 8 countries. This includes modeling, commercials & print work in Athens & Istanbul, acting in Toronto & London, UK, and even screen writing, before diving into the big market of Los Angeles that I now call home.

With 10 years of vocal training (primarily spoken level voice & breath work for actors) voiceovers has also been a big part of my career, recording voices on more

than 400 projects to date.

My love for the craft brought me to study in NYC with legendary acting coach Uta Hagen: a process that transformed my approach and led to such roles as Blanche in Streetcar Named Desire and Karen in David Mamet's iconic Hollywood satire, Speed The Plow. I have also appeared on screen in The Bandit Hound II with Lou Ferrigno, Paul Sorvino & Catherine Bell & on TV in Mutant X, Doc, Singles Court, PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal and has hosted for HGTV. Currently I'm voicing 5 characters (English language dubbing) on the mega hit TV series Babylon Berlin and shooting a sitcom pilot! How fun is that?!

About J

I am a professional actor, writer, director and acting coach. I graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelors of Art, specifically in Theatre. I am also a graduate of Savannah College of Arts & Design with a Masters of Fine Arts, with a focus on performing arts.

Acting students can expect improve with each class they attend. I teach students to be free and expressive while being on stage. Being free and uninhibited allows the students to not be self conscious and able to fully absorb the acting process. I can help any student to perform with freedom, confidence, and expression.

As a professional actor I get the opportunity to travel throughout the US with my original plays and workshops. I've had the chance to perform in many different venues, from festivals to black box theaters. With getting the chance to be apart

of workshops I get to be trained by other professional actors also. Yep, there is always work to be done

While my ultimate passion is acting, I am a huge advocate of supporting the arts in all capacities. As a performer by nature it is my belief that training is essential to every artist's process. I look forward to sharing my love and passion for acting with you! Let's change the world through the ARTS!!!!
