Hey You! Thanks for reading. I am a professional actress and writer with degrees from Yale and NYU. I have studied improv at UCB and on-camera with all the good funny teachers (Leslye Kahn, Bob Krakower). And I have worked with Larry David, Emma Stone, Kathleen Turner, Steve Martin, Jenna Fischer and more. This is what I believe: No one is you. So let's let your beautiful you-ness shine! Sometimes with acting, getting a good audition feels like chewing gum and walking and also juggling self criticism knives. What I want to help you do is focus on the work. I am a supportive teacher and my students book jobs/get into school. But more importantly than that, I want you to walk out of your audition room feeling you did your best work. I have worked regionally, on broadway, on your streaming service and in independent films. I also write and direct for film so I know what the other side of the table is looking for. And my favorite thing I teach? Creative writing for kids, so, if you feel stuck, we can pull out that child beginner's mind and get down to make believe. We got this!

Alex is an amazing coach! She has helped with with dozens of auditions from television comedy to Shakespeare. A compassionate and generous being, Alex is able to share her technique and knowledge in a way that makes any actor feel at ease and confident, both while working and in the audition room. She knows how to ask the right questions that encourage me to bring intelligence and uniqueness to each role, making my auditions more detailed and specific. And she's well-priced! How can you go wrong? WORK WITH ALEX! I promise, you'll be happy.
