I am a professional actor that offers acting coaching: monologues, auditions, scenes, character work for a role in a show.

I studied acting with noted acting teacher for over 50 years Wynn Handman who has trained many outstanding actors including: Alec Baldwin, Chris Cooper, Michael Douglas, Mia Farrow, Richard Gere, John Leguizamo, Susan Lucci, Burt Reynolds, Mira Sorvino, Christopher Walken, and Denzel Washington. I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Acting Performance from Southern Methodist University.

Acting students can expect to improve week to week in their technique, presentation, and confidence. Every person is special and unique, and I teach students to release tension and inhibitions while applying the techniques needed to unlock their own individual potential.

I teach acting students of all different ages and experience levels. I have been performing as an actor and teaching for 20+ years. I can teach students performance and auditioning skills, vocal control, script analysis, and how to make the strongest acting choices to get the part. I am experienced in teaching film/tv acting styles, and Shakespearean and contemporary theatre performance.

As a professional actor I have had the opportunity to perform in theatres across the US, as well as for tv and film in both the US and Russia. I am also a proud member of the performing arts unions. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic performers.

I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style of acting. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to achieve your dreams!
