I have been studying theatre acting for years. I have been a Musical Theatre performer for years and I am still studying singing, acting and dancing. I am still young and know what it feels to want to better yourself everyday, so I can relate to most learning students. I put a lot of importance to voice training, technique and acting warm-ups.

I trained at the same school as Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), Ray Fischer (Justice League), Tyne Daly (look her up, you won't be sorry) and Jason Derulo. I am well versed in dialects, American Standard, stage combat (armed and unarmed), film acting, acting for stage, classical, acting and more! Even if you just want to work on a monologue. Im happy to help! I've been a working actor both on stage and screen for almost three years now, but let's be real. We all need a side hustle. I can even help you with learning how to self-produce/promote on a budget.
Now if you are a parent, let me direct you to the babysitting agency Pinch Sitters, on whose website you can see that I work with kids and have been background checked through the company.

I am a professionally-trained actor specializing in teaching the Meisner Technique to students of all ages and ability levels. I am passionate about this work and seeing my students grow both personally and professionally. I have extensive physical theater experience in movement, mask, and clown which has shaped me into a well-rounded actor that is prepared to meet the demands of any project -- from Shakespeare to one-act shows.
I have been fortunate enough to have trained with some of today's most influential and highly sought after acting instructors and am eager to share what I have learned with my students. I don't believe that there is one "right" way of approaching acting. There are several ways in to this craft and as an instructor, it is my responsibility to customize the instruction for each individual student.
What distinguishes me from other instructors is my unique background. Not only am I an actor but I'm also a trial lawyer. Not surprisingly, I also teach public ...
I get to know my students on a personal level so that I can custom-tailor a training program that will help maximize their potential and their growth as artists.
My teaching philosophy consists of two parts:
First: Your life is inspiring. Your experiences are unique. And your perspective is unlike anyone else's on this planet. As actors, we tend to get audition material and generalize it immediately and create an idea of what our character should be. And then we advance a general idea of that prototy
Second: Your emotions must be real, but you’re not allowed to show them in a way that is artificial or pretentious. Most actors make the same mistake when they get a scene. They get too excited. “This scene is great! So much good emotion! It’s been so long since I’ve really sunk my teeth into good material. I can’t wait to kill it!” And believe me, I get it. As an actor, sometimes the bait is too attempting not to take. But be weary of falling into this trap. If you show the audience your cards the entire time, they will know exactly where you’re heading.
And if they know where you're heading, they won't remain interested for long. The other thing to recognize is that in real life, which we as actors are always trying to re-create, we tend to cover up our emotions and play it cool.
All of this to say that the craft of the scene lies in what you cover up and what you decide to show.
I teach it as a two-part process. In the first part, you over-act. You blow it out of the water. You yell, you cry, you laugh, you improvise, you go nuts and do all the things you know you can’t do in front of a casting director. This is done not to teach you "bad habits" but instead, so you can get a sense of what you wish you could do but can't.
In the second part, you cover it up by not showing anything. And from there, we see what needs to come out. As the great Sanford Meisner once said, "Don't do anything until something happens to make you do it." This requires enormous self-restraint and patience. But ironically, something always does happen.
I am a working actor in New York. I have been off-broadway twice this year and this fall I am featured in a film starring Chadwick Boseman. I have studied with some of the best acting teachers in the business in everything ranging from Method, Clown, Shakespeare, and more. I love to piece together all the different techniques I’ve learned to give a well-rounded experience tailored to each individual students needs. My specialties are Shakespeare and Theater audition coaching.
I will create a learning environment where you can come as you are, and feel safe to fail big. I will push you to do your best work, and grow as a performer, while never losing sight of the fact that acting is first and foremost PLAY. Let’s have fun and make a beautiful mess together!

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft. Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen. Just as we see athletes spending time stretching and warming up before a performance, it’s mandatory that actors warm up before …
