I grew up in the Northern Virginia area and have spent the last 15 years participating in some form of public speaking, whether through acting, directing, or delivering speeches. I have a B.S. in Theatre and Acting. I have delivered numerous speeches in front of crowds as small as one and as large as a few hundred. Currently I work in a position that requires public speaking to a crowd of at least 200 each week.

***Lesson Details*** I am fun and laid back in my style of teaching. I expect that the student will have pieces prepared or in mind for us to work on. Because public speaking can be troubling on its own, I try my best to provide an atmosphere where the student can feel comfortable.

I often will use very short clips of other speakers to provide ideas on both vocal and physical delivery. I do encourage the student to practice what we cover on their own, and to come prepared each session.

I do not teach "mechanical" speaking. Some of the points we will work through will be annunciation, pausing, facial expression, volume, awkwardness, delivery, what to do with your hands, and most important, being comfortable. I have a good ear for fine tuning a vocal performance, and a few solutions to help out with difficult moments. My goal is to help you deliver unique, confident, even enjoyable speeches for any occasion: sermons, monologues, board room presentations, opening/closing statements, interviews, etc.

***Studio Equipment***
Computer, speakers for MP3 player, space to move (if needed).

***Specialties***
I specialize in speeches of short to moderate length (1-30 minutes). Monologues from plays/musicals will be approached differently. We will work on the vocal and physical element of your presentation, but I am happy to also assist in helping you develop your character within the monologue.

I have helped individuals of all ages strengthen their oral presentations and grow in confidence, whether it is in front of a small board room, a jury, an audience, or a group of family and friends. Whether it's delivering an introduction for a colleague, or giving a closing/opening argument in a courtroom, I've assisted individuals in fine tuning their performance and helping them to deliver it confidently.
