As an instructor, I've always aimed to not only make sure my lessons are easy to comprehend, engaging, informative and entertaining. There's nothing worse than trying to learn with a boring instructor and I believe the more you give the more you get back. My lessons are full of laughter and logic as I allow you able opportunity to get hands on.

About Eric S.

As a Marine Corps Veteran I pride myself on high integrity, high standards and high motivation. I am an author/writer, background actor, poet, songwriter, former recording artist, music consultant and talent manager. I studied script writing and Film with the Academy of Art San Francisco (did not complete degree).

My journey began as an aspiring rapper in the late 90's to the early/mid 2000's. After publishing my book in 2008, I spent a brief stint writing for a hip hop music publication which lead me to an internship with an independent music label out of Philadelphia PA.

In 2011, after moving back to Houston TX, I founded my artist development firm where I would mentor and instruct aspiring musicians about the technical aspects of being an artist and the industry standards and practices.

In 2013, I was hired on as an acting instructor with a national modeling and acting school and also accepted a role as the Director for the affiliated agency. Over the next four years, I instructed mentored and represented musicians models and actors.

I use my 20 years of studio experience, to help voice actors "find their voice character" and improve their vocal strength and techniques.

I teach film students of all different ages and experience levels. I spent four years teaching Acting for Commercial and Film to pre-teens as young as 6 through seniors up to 83 years old and everything in between. I can teach students how to properly prepare for and ace auditions, how to successfully perform a cold read, students will learn set etiquette, how to pursue and secure the "perfect" role and so much more.

As a former talent agent I still have many industry contacts and tools at my disposal. I have built an impressive client list with the likes Brock Allen Casting, Vicky Boone, Macy's, JW Hair, Houston Fashion Week, Jake McKim with Amp Music and Parkwood Entertainment, Ox Films, Armstrong McCall, Visible Changes, HEB and Paul Mitchell Hair just to name a few.

I take much pride and personal interest in helping you achieve what many people first think is impossible, we work as a team after all your success is my success. I will walk you hand in hand to the water's edge but the decision to drink is on you. I will put every tool you need to be successful right at your feet, all you'll have to do is pick them up. I look forward to meeting you and helping you take the first step in pursuing your goal.
