Thank you Joe, for having such a HUGE role in my 7 year old daughter's winning 1st place for her two person scene 2 years in a row and for adding 1st place for her commercial and for her placing for best monologue to the list of successes. I see your instruction all over her phenomenal job and it is no wonder the casting director that judged her 2 person scene immediately impromptu auditioned her for a lead role in a movie! YOU ROCK JOE! You take acting and your instruction so seriously! AMAZED and THANKFUL that you're her coach!!

After years of acting training in both Undergraduate and Grad School I thought I was prepped for the professional world. Unbeknownst to me, auditioning is actually a completely different skill than acting. They are related but are in no way the same. You can actually be an incredible actor who is a terrible auditioner. This is where Joe comes in--he's spent countless hours (probably close to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000) learning the skills it takes to give not just a good, but a great and memorable audition. He can take an audition side that I'm working on and give me a completely unique take on it after seeing the script for a mere 2 minutes. His insight and creativity is uncanny, as is his ability to see holes in my game that I don't even know exist. Truthfully, every time I've had him coach me for an audition (film/TV or Theatre) I have at least gotten a callback. His ability to come up with unique and memorable ideas are enough alone to use him. I know that after he's coached me that I am nothing but prepared for what's to come. I stroll into audition rooms bursting with confidence. I cannot sing his praises enough. I feel bad for stealing his creative ideas--the ideas he comes up with for me--but hey, all the best artists steal! Use Joe!

My 6 year old daughter is pursuing an acting career and has been working on it for 1 year. Choosing Joe was the best find we could have come across!! Olivia won 1st place for her 2 person scene shortly after Joe started coaching her, and 8 weeks later auditioned for the main character of a Hollywood movie and was told by the director that she was "fantastic". He brings something to the table that I would not be without now that I have seen it work for her. He shows up to lessons with an actual camera and lights to imitate an audition and shows her on video how she did and what the camera sees. He is strict enough to keep me happy that progress is being made and that the time is used resourcefully, but is very kid friendly and Olivia loves working with him. He is patient too. I highly recommend him, although we'd like to be stingy with his time and keep him to ourselves!! :) He also brings actual Hollywood scripts for her to learn and work on (sides). He is truly fantastic!!

Joe is a true gem!
I have been going to him for coaching, off and on, for a few years now and overtime I see my work improve by leaps and bounds. He is always patient and genuine with his coaching and has a way of putting his student at ease. His personal experience with the craft means that he really knows how to relate to actors and bring out the best in their performance. If you can get on his roster of clients DO IT!

Joe has coached me on a number of theater and on camera auditions. When working with him I've found that he is able to effectively communicate in a way that produces incredible results immediately in the moment. I've always left a session with bolder choices in the scenes/monologues, and a sense of spontaneity and confidence. AND I've booked two shows from auditions that Joe has helped coach me on in the past year and a half! I recommend him highly to anyone who is looking for an acting coach!

As a novice to the acting world, Joseph truly helped me find the confidence and balance I needed to break away from my fears and insecurities. Incredibly patience, he guided me through all the steps of how to become a successful actor while still managing to find ways to challenge my boundaries and perceptions. He is extremely knowledgeable in the art of stage and has a keen understanding of film. If you are looking for an instructor that can help you not only work a live audience but handle being in front and behind a camera, I would truly recommend taking a couple of sessions with him. He will teach you all the ins and outs of the acting industry and help better your techniques in such areas as stage movement, vocals, text interpretation, lighting, editing, cameras, and so much more. I can honestly say that after working with Joe, I am a much more secure actress and feel successful in my endeavors.

Joseph is an excellent teacher. He listens to your concerns and gets results. If you are looking to improve your confidence in auditions you need look no further. Under Joseph's guidance I have gained the skills necessary to showcase my talent on both stage and screen. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have had the honor of being coached by Joe for a few auditions, both stage and camera. His knowledge of both medium is astounding. As a professional actor myself, I was very impress with his approach and how efficient he was during the process. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who is seeking training, or coaching for an audition.
