ACTORS will learn how to connect and open up to their emotional life, trust their instincts and gain confidence in performance. You will learn emotional memory, Stanislavski's basic acting tools and how to apply The Method to any script using your life experiences to make the script live. Having coached actors for many years, audition preparation and performance are two of my specialities. You'll learn detailed exercises that you can use in any situation. You will learn how to let go of non-productive habits that impede your creative process and how to increase use your vocal and physical expressiveness. You will learn exercises and insights that will increase your ACTOR TOOLBOX so you are equipped to face rehearsals and performances. I have been teaching acting for over 25 years. I am the artistic director of Voice Theatre and have directed over 40 productions on 4 continents. Check out some of the videos! In America I have taught acting at; New York University, Stella Adler Studio, Williams College, Bowdoin College the T. Schreiber Studio and in the UK at; The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Middlesex University and in London's West End at the Drill Hall Studio.

I've graced the stages of some of NYC's most beloved theatres including; The National Black Theatre, The Public Theatre, 13th Street Rep, and HERE Arts Center. I can be seen in a number of films, commercials, and music videos alongside the likes of Shaquille O’Neal. I’ve performed worldwide in places like Athens, GR. I have worked with world-famous directors like Broadway's Kenny Leon and Dennis Hilton-Reid, and received training from some of the world's top acting institutions (The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, CalArts). I have directed regionally and in New York, I teach regularly with The Family Repertory Company (Where I have served as a resident actor and director since 2016), and have students spanning the globe! I strive to acquire as much knowledge about this craft as is possible and to share that gift with the world. A wise man once told me, “The only reason to act is that it hurts too much not to.” My approach Heightened Sense of Self Awareness Expanding the Self (mind/ body/ voice) Text Analysis/ Scene Study Creating Multi-Dimensional Characters Building Character Relationships Fighting for an Objective Audition and Performance Technique

In the dramatic arts, method acting is a technique that actors use to create and develop lifelike performances. Though not all Method actors use the same approach, the "Method" refers to the method of teaching the craft of acting, which was created by Constantin Stanislavski in order to teach concepts of acting to his students. Later, Lee Strasberg adapted Stanislavski’s method of teaching for American actors. Strasberg's method emphasized the practice of connecting to a character by drawing on personal emotions and memories, aided by a set of exercises and practices including sense memory and effective memory. Stanislavski's system of acting was the foundation of Strasberg's technique. Those who use Strasberg's technique are now commonly referred to as "Method Actors", although the "Method" refers to Stanislavski's original system.
