Acting professional teaching you privately what to do publicly: Just Have FUN With It!
I'm a working actor and commercial acting coach that you see on TV. I am a former talent manager, producer, and agent. I prepare actors for work in television and film. While many of my former students and clients are top commercial actors, TV and film stars, thousands more are professionals that work in every area of television and film. I specialize in grooming and developing, starting careers, teaching, and helping actors understand how to make it in show business. All acting styles have evolved, including commercials. I teach improvisation, handling sides, reading cue cards, self-taping, how to slate, and regulate your energy levels. Evaluating headshots, and the business of commercial acting are separate classes.

Addison is a fantastic, challenging acting coach; he brings out things in me I didn’t notice before; I can’t wait to start up again with my next session. I’m confident that I will learn some things I need to improve my acting skills

The lesson was fun, engaging, and challenging. Addison compacted so much helpful information in this session. He's professional, reassuring and easy to talk to. I could not have had a better lesson. I'm now a huge fan!
