About J W.

I am a professional actor, writer, director and acting coach. I graduated from North Carolina Central University with a Bachelors of Art, specifically in Theatre. I am also a graduate of Savannah College of Arts & Design with a Masters of Fine Arts, with a focus on performing arts. Acting students can expect to improve with each class they attend. I teach students to be free and expressive while being on stage. Being free and uninhibited allows the students to not be self conscious and able to fully absorb the acting process. I can help any student to perform with freedom, confidence, and expression. As a professional actor I get the opportunity to travel throughout the US with my original plays and workshops. I've had the chance to perform in many different venues, from festivals to black box theaters. With getting the chance to be apart of workshops I get to be trained by other professional actors also. Yep, there is always work to be done While my ultimate passion is acting, I am a huge advocate of supporting the arts in all capacities. As a performer by nature it is my belief that training is essential to every artist's process. I look forward to sharing my love and passion for acting with you! Let's change the world through the ARTS!!!!

I completed my fourth acting lesson with J last week. We focused on helping improve my confidence and skills as a virtual speaker (Zoom and YouTube). I researched a lot of people on Take Lessons and even looked them up on social media. After research, I decided to go with J. I am glad I did. After each lesson, my confidence improved. I truly felt like my time and money were well spent. I completed our fourth lesson really believing that I could speak online, and this is coming from someone who is a bit of an introvert and has no desire to be on social media. I am only on social media because of my business. If not for that, I don’t care to have an online presence. So if you are shy or feel you can’t do it, don’t worry about that. J will get you right!! LOL He is a confident, skilled coach. Very personal and even funny. He is passionate about what he does and made me feel like he saw me as a person, not just a student. I am buying more lessons from him. If I improved so much in 4 lessons, I can only imagine how much I will improve with 10! I highly recommend that you book him as an acting coach. You won’t be disappointed.
