Overview

A multifaceted and well rounded acting teacher, I mix equal parts humor and motivation with a breadth of knowledge that guarantees to help ANY client reach their personal goals.

I received my B.F.A. in Theater from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, en route to being awarded the prestigious Ron Howard Foundation Scholarship. I've performed in various theater productions regionally and internationally while also Guest Starring on NBC's Law & Order: SVU, CBS' Blue Bloods, ABC's Castle, and TNT's Major Crimes.

As a Voice Over artist, my award nominated vocal talents have been featured on GMA's Summer Concert Series for the past 4 years. I boost a 75% audition to booking ratio, having booked over 40 voice overs in 2014 alone.

H e is very patient with children Amazing instructor teaches you how to break down scripts, and how to perform it with the broken down script. Teaches great skills you can take on any audition anywhere. Fun person to be around. He and my son both clicked right away and my son LOVES him.
