I’ve made a life for myself in the creative fields, and I’d like the opportunity to work with you!
I’m an award-winning actor and have Broadway, off-Broadway, Television, Film credits. I am also a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated Director, and a Producer. Throughout my career, I have always been a teacher, and have helped develop, and nurture the careers of countless young actors and professionals with practical tools to make them better! As a young actor, I was lucky to be trained by an incredible mentor for many years, he instilled in me a deep respect for the art form, and as it should be I impart that knowledge to everyone I teach. I will teach you to be the best actor you can be, that’s a guarantee.
In Los Angeles I coach professional actors, most recently the female lead In Will Smiths Bad Boys III, as well as one of the male principals in the Mark Walberg Film Patriots Day. My process is simple, and yet through. Script analysis, so you know exactly what the material requires, relaxation, igniting your imagination, playing objectives, and commitment. I’ll give you the tools that will set you apart from everyone else!
I teach those 13 + and all levels. My teaching style is FUN, FUN, and FUN! One of the main ingredients in being a true actor is tapping into our childlike sense of play. Let’s get started and see how I can help you develop your craft!

About Carlo D.

From television - film, to voice over-work, and solo performance to large ensemble theater productions, both nationally and internationally... I have carved a 30-year career for myself with my acting. And through all of it, I have been a teacher. I LOVE acting, and the theater has taught me so much. More than just about anyone I have made a living from my talents and I want to share them with you. If you cannot make money at your art then it's only a hobby, and that's fine either way, it works. But what if you could make money?!

I have a practical no thills way of looking at the highly complex and simultaneously simple art form. Let me help you learn, and apply what you learn to suit your creative pursuits, whatever they may be. Below is an abbreviated bio, and it's written in the third person cause it's fancier that way! :)

Carlo is an entrepreneur, award-winning actor, a playwright, a Drama Desk Nominated director, a producer, as well as an experience designer and the creative director and founder of Live in Theater Productions (LIT INTERACTIVE LLC). He’s a multiple threat artist, who in the live performance arena has focused on interactive. He always seeks to answer the question: How do we engage a non-rehearsed participant (the audience) to co-create a story with us? And how do we accomplish this while creating content that allows us (the audience) to live in extraordinary circumstances?

Carlo’s work has been featured in N.Y Times, N.Y Mag, CBS, GQ, NBC, The Times of London, SF Chronicle, The Verge, to name a few. LIT has an impressive list of corporate clients on their rosters, with close to 700 clients in 10 years, many of the top companies in the world, have sought out LIT. Since 2009 he and LIT have re-imagined the mystery genre. By blending award-winning acting, real historical events, and a heightened sense of realism from the actors, what audiences experience is high caliber cutting-edge experiential interactive theater. The work of LIT has been experienced by hundreds of thousands in between New York City, Madrid, Spain, Austin Texas, Los Angeles California, and soon to be Shanghai China.

Carlo is an amazing actor and teacher. He teaches you to commit 1000%, and he is always invested in you as a coach/director. No matter what you’re working on in your acting, he will guide you to push the boundaries of what you think you’re capable of, always with a great sense of humor. I can’t recommend him enough!

Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools of acting which can be very overwhelming into simple and manageable steps. He has a deep respect for the art form and a practical no-nonsense way to help you find the truth in your acting while finding a way to make it dynamic, and help you stand out. I always recommend him, and will continue to do so! His teaching has employed many actors over the least 10+ years

Carlo is truly WOW! His classes are not only deeply insightful, but pure entertainment. He has become my acting mentor. He has changed the way that I approach acting and I owe much of my success to him.

Carlo is a fantastic teacher! He is an expert in improvisation and developing character. I have taken classes with Carlo in-person and online and he can work his magic in any medium. I feel more confident as a performer and have developed a sixth sense of trust when it comes to my acting impulses. If you have a chance to take a class from Carlo—DO IT!

Carlo is one of those great acting teachers and directors who manage to teach you so much without making it feel like class or work. He is so incredibly passionate that it can't help but transfer to you and the work that you do under his guidance, and ultimately if you can tap into that passion, you'll be okay no matter what the role. Working in his Live in Theater productions is like the Olympics of acting. As an actress who has worked on both film and stage, the two present different and equally difficult challenges, but since LIT is interactive theater it gives you all of those challenges at once! I can't think of a better training tool for an actor...I don't know how he does it, but just in the short time I've worked with Carlo, I've overcome so many of my personal blocks as an actress. I guess that's why he's the teacher and I'm the student. Every actor should work with Carlo and aspire to act in one of his productions. It will truly make you the best you can be.

Carlo is one of my favorite teachers to work with. As an actor, it is rare to find a director, teacher, or coach with his unique blend of experience, humor, and dedication to craft. He is able to push for emotional depths but approaches even the grittiest, most dramatic projects with the heartfelt belief that the process should be fun.

Working with Carlo has been one of the greatest and most fulfilling processes of my acting career. He asked a lot of us and demanded our best but also provided us with the tools needed to succeed in the creation and performance. Collaboration with Carlo is a deep and personal experience because he truly takes what we bring to the table and together we craft something that is specific and full. He’s a natural and charismatic leader and I always felt safe during the process.
Working with Carlo has enabled me to create and inhabit characters I never thought I would. He’s such an exciting and specific actor himself, I’ve learned so much just watching him. Plus he’s fun! Really fun!

I first met Carlo 6 years ago in New York City. He was my teacher at New York Film Academy. I had already studied Theater for 4 years (undergrad) and I wanted to focus more on film acting. Carlo was by far the best teacher I had in my two years at NYFA. And we had top-notch teachers throughout the whole program. But no one like Carlo. He is the perfect mix of theory + practice; director + actor; logic + passion; universal + individual; teacher + friend. He will teach you about the art of acting from ALL angles. And he will make you a better actor + human. It just doesn’t not get any better this!

Carlo pushes you to where you think you can go but aren't quite sure how to get there. Carlo knows how he gives you the tools to expand your craft. He takes out the heaviness and theory of acting and replaces it with an instruction that produces immediate results. Carlo is a master of the craft, working with him inspires me to dig deeper and always search for what makes a character dynamic. This is what he is always instilling on us, be DYNAMIC going from one rich emotion/ moment to the other. He makes it so fluid and that's what he's teaching, to be fluid and make strong choices, never settle for mundane. Other teachers preach this but there is a break in communication between teacher and student. Carlo simplifies and reduces the tools so you are given immediate results. Since working with Carlo I have become fearless in my auditions. I have booked 2 television shows and 3 indie feature films. I owe this to Carlo and my experience at LiveInTeheater. The man is a master craftsman and a genius. He will make you a better actor period.
