John works with students to teach and reinforce the fundamentals of and build good foundations for acting. No matter your skill level, John will use his experience as a director and a coach to work with actors towards their goals whether they be to improve craft, build repertoire, or prepare for auditions. John works within a modified form of Viewpoints Method (as well as derivative forms of Stanislavsky and Meisner) and lessons involve movement-based warm-ups, grounding exercises, work through improv, and text work/character building. Lessons with more experienced actors or actors looking to improve rep or prepare for auditions will also involve scenework.

About John

I have a huge range of interests in the performing arts. At Northwestern, I trained simultaneously in acting, directing, music theatre, legal studies (for fun), and composition/writing. As a director and a coach, I pride myself on creating a positive atmosphere where actors are encouraged to try the

John is very experienced and helpful. More importantly, he has a calming and supportive vibe that I find really helps me stay motivated. Highly recommend!
Katy
I have worked with John as both an actor and a writer in a professional capacity. He directed me during my first foray into immersive theatre and was so terrific at breaking down concepts and offering his insight and experience while still treating the process as collaborative. I cannot recommend working with John as a student or a collaborator highly enough. Although I have not worked with him in a musical capacity, the work of his I have had the opportunity to witness is first class as a composer, lyricist, and musician. Most importantly, thanks to John, I have found my own voice as an immersive artist.

She prepared thoroughly before class to make sure the class didn’t just consist of her talking but of engaging discussions and activities too. I highly recommend her as a teacher/educator."

A friend of mine just booked a job after using him and he was the one who hooked me up with this guys info. I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it. I now walk into casting rooms more confedent and for the very first time ended up testing for not one but two different pilots that he has coached me on. Can not recommend this man enough!"

"David has really helped my auditions. I have booked two jobs since coaching with him. He takes me back to the basics, forces me to let go of my ego, and doesn't allow me to use any of my actor "tricks." Consequently my auditions are resonating in a new and effective way. As of right now, he is absolutely essential when I have an appointment. I emphatically recommend him for coaching."

Acting Tips: What's in your Toolbox?

As with any profession, actors have tools. Just as a doctor needs a stethoscope or a fireman needs a hose, there are certain items an actor must keep in their toolbox. I usually start classes or lessons by asking my new students or clients what they think these tools might be. Sometimes, the answer is very literal ("Script!"), and other times abstract ("Passion!"). None of these is a wrong answer. Being an actor or artist is subjective and everyone's process is different and valid. But t …
