Teaching since:
2013

I'm a professional actor and singer hailing from down south in Dallas Texas! I've been in New York working for the last 10 years as an actor, writer and producer. I've been teaching for about 5 years a variety of lessons as well as students. I have a traditional background, garnering my degree in Acting from St. Edward's University in Austin Texas and in the last 8 years have begun my television and film career. My technique is primarily Meisner based but I use a variety of methods to coach and teach based on the needs of the student! I travel to you, to a rehearsal space or am happy to host you in my apartment in Queens. I love working with all different kinds of students at varying levels in their acting and figuring out what they need to crack that monologue, audition or character choice. I'm also well versed in the television and film business in the Northeast so if you are looking to brush up on your business acumen or develop a more targeting pitch as a performer, we can work on that also! I'm also available to come with you to an audition to coach or read with you on a self tape. Send me a message! Let's create together! :)

My son had just expressed interest in acting so we worked with Kate in 6 sessions helping him become more comfortable with auditioning, cold reading and scene work. She was attentive, creative and knowledgeable. She made him feel confident and even helped him make some connections with possible agents and managers. The fact that she’s actively auditioning and knows the current state of the industry is a game changer! We continue to work with her for specific auditions and coachings, she’s awesome!

Anytime I'd be working on a monologue or a scene, she would always allow me to do what I felt my instincts were driving me to do and then she'd have insightful conversations afterwards where I'd think about things I wasn't thinking of before, regarding the character or the scene. It gave me a completely new perspective to try the scene again where we'd then tweak things that needed tweaking. She's got a great eye and ear for this stuff!
