I was offered full rides to Yale, NYU, and UCSD and earned my MFA in Acting from UCSD in 2009. Since then, I've guest-starred and recurred on 20+ network TV shows, led several films, performed on Broadway and at the top regional theaters in the country. I've also served as an Adjunct Professor at Pace University and NYU.
Whether you're looking to learn the fundamentals of acting, sharpen your auditions pieces for BFA or MFA programs, or book more professional gigs by improving your self-tapes and in-room auditions for every medium, I will deliver for you.
I love helping actors grow as much as performing myself. Together, we will bolster your imagination and toolbox to arrive at further truth and dynamics in storytelling.
Looking forward to hearing from you!

About Johnny W.

I grew up in NYC and stumbled upon acting my senior year at Stuyvesant High School. Though I had a late start into the performance world, I had a deeper well than my peers. I was already accepted into SUNY Binghamton's School of Management but decided to start there as a theater major. Upon graduating college, I worked on my grad school audition pieces every single day for six months straight. I was the only candidate in 2006 to be offered full scholarships to Yale, NYU, and UC San Diego. I chose UCSD's program mainly because of its smaller class of 8 actors per year. Also, I was able to begin my teaching journey there as I taught Acting I for two years. I received my MFA in 2009 and began my career in television in Los Angeles while starting to privately coach beginner actors. Since then, I've moved back to New York, and have worked non-stop. Today, I coach and teach many actors while steadily working in TV, film, and theater.
