Becoming an professional actor is a progressive process. Let's journey together.

Using a variety of Stanislavski-based methods I work with actors of all levels to promote emotional freedom, clarity, and artistry. My work is based on the three major American proponents of Stanislavski's work; Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, and Lee Strasberg.

I also work using methods I've learned from my time at Shakespeare & Company that connect the actor's personal narrative to classic text.

Alex is knowledgable, intuitive and just tough enough. And although open for discussion, he is usually, ok I’ll admit it, spot on!

Very easy to work with. Makes me more confident
Shaneece
J's assisted me with my public speaking tremendously. I am not an actor at all but I struggle with speaking on camera and in front of people and J used strategies from stage performance principles and applied them. I went from stuttering and stumbling over words to speaking with clarity and confidence. I look forward to continuously work with him.

"I don't know about you (yes you, the one reading this), but I've been secretly wanting to act my whole life and am a full of life personality with hidden insecurities. Even though I have never really acted professionally, I have been theatrical and playing all sorts of characters, speaking in accents and dancing to everything in front of the mirror, in comfortable social gatherings and have even put on shows for my pets and husband! Last time I acted "professionally" was in a high school play. And even then, I mostly helped make the props!

I tell you this, because, with that kind of a background, nervous and yet SO excited to JUST TRY, I chose Christian as my teacher- my professor of Acting!

I am 3 classes in and Christian is very supportive, non-judgemental and extremely easy to learn with. I am impressed with his skills, his ability to immediately decipher something I'm trying to explain, and then how easy he makes it for me to put his constructive feedback into practice. The practice is not easy... because that stuff always takes hard work, but he explains it all so easily so I can start practicing and exploring the acting world. He is honest about the acting world, the people in it and the various steps it takes to get to wherever you are trying to get! So be honest with yourself and let this be an authentic and fun experience! Plus, it's so nice to talk to someone that actually gets what it's like to be dreaming!

Thanks Christian!"
