Hi! As a working actor on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Superstore, E.R., The Thundermans, Fresh Off The Boat and many more, there are few things I love as much as assisting students in making breakthroughs and discoveries. I am a graduate of The Upright Citizens Brigade and have been teaching improv for 8 years. Improv is an incredible tool for freeing us to build and find exciting choices in all our work. Whether you're looking to strengthen your commercial, television, film, theater, public speaking techniques, or just wanna have some fun, you'll soon love leaping "without a net".

About Hunter S.

From numerous TV shows like Superstore, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Fresh Off The Boat, E.R., The Thundermans, Lady Dynamite, Happy Endings and Henry Danger, to theater at The Tony Award winning Steppenwolf Theater, Chicago Shakespeare, National Playwrights Conference and numerous others, my 20 year acting career has taught me many lessons to share. As a working writer/director, this has only grown.

I love teaching. There are few things as rewarding as being a part of a student's development and their personal victories. Many of my students have achieved notable representation and consistently work. Other students are simply pursuing acting for the joy of it or a tool to gain confidence. Whether it's audition prep or personal development, if you bring the drive, I promise to get you to your goals ... oh, and we'll have a lot of fun on the way. After all, it's called a "play" for a reason.

I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.

I've been doing classes with Hunter for a month now, I have to say he's awesome. He definitely makes sure you are comfortable and he helps you with positive feedback. He's really good at helping you improve in your weak points as well!

Hunter was fantastic, he really helped me understand the thought process of going from scratch to building full scenes and also helped me get over my fear of doing improv in a class full of people with the preparation I now have. I would gladly recommend anyone I know who's interested in classes to work with Hunter!

Hunter is really great at communicating and directing a scene to make it better. It's always an interesting direction and makes the scene more real and fun. His calm attitude and teaching style creates a positive environment to learn and succeed and most importantly have fun.

Hunter has been incredible at helping me prep for auditions! Over and over, he has helped me find that personal connection to the character, while making strong choices. Working with him has made me so much better at auditioning. He always gets me out of my head and reminds me why I love acting.
