If you want to study The Method I can teach you. I coach all levels of actors with the intention of my actors getting work. And they do. I want you to explore what it's like to experience the unbelievable amount of satisfaction you can have by allowing yourself to study acting. I teach from a method base and will work on monologues, scenes, and audition materials, collaborating with you on what it is you need to understand how we go about doing this thing called acting. I can work virtually. One thing you must know about me, I am nice. I won't crush your dreams. I will, however, make sure you attain them. I can come to you or you can meet me where I teach. I am in SF and Los Angeles. I successfully work virtually with actors, too. I look forward to meeting you. I coach all levels of actors.

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.

I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

See Acting. I am a member of the Actors Studio and understand the precepts from their origin. write to me with specific questions and I will be pleased to enter into a dialogue. I have very strong opinions on the methods and find it often misunderstood. I am a very good teacher of the Tension-Relaxation in the Chair work as well as the Sense Memory work. I have the original list of Sense Memory exercises passed down from Lee Strasberg to the two women who I spent years studying with. This is very important work and I believe in it and understand it.

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
