I've not only been an actor, but a director/producer, as someone who has been on both sides of the table I know what directors, casting directors and producers are looking for as well as knowing what it is like to audition as an actor.

Outside of acting I've worked for various sectors as an administrative assistant and recruiter for a medical device consulting firm and as an administrative assitant for an engineering consulting firm. I have also worked for multiple restaurants and catering companies as a server, bartender, and management, and has been a freelance wedding coordinator. ​

Everyone is different which means that everyone’s career will take a different path. That is why I not only offers actor coaching, but career coaching; resume/headshot review, where to submit, protocol before and after the audition, how to self-produce your own work, and anything else you may need or want to know.

I love working with students and finding what works for each individual. Actor training is amazing for public speaking, critical thinking and problem solving. I love watching my students grow and expand.
