I graduated from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a BFA in acting. UNCSA offers a classical training program where there is a strong emphasis on Voice/Speech under many Linklater and Alexander certified professors.
I work with many artists fighting nerves and external tension, having performed Off-Broadway and regionally myself. But I've applied my skillset to all individuals looking to free their voice and bodies including doctors, lawyers and other professionals.
Having worked through my own vocal and physical roadblocks, I have a deep empathy for those who are struggling to find their voice and have created my own system that is personalized to the individual that I'm excited to share with you.
Michael provided valuable feedback on my presenting style and speaking skills. His insight gave me to help fine tune my presentation style was extremely valuable.
I look forward to working with him and having members of my team work with him as well.
Michael is a phenomenal teacher and artist. I felt super comfortable and knew that Michael had trained hard and is working just as hard. If you’re looking for a speech or acting coach, Michael is one of the best up and coming teachers in NYC
Michael was very supportive and had specific pointers to improve my presentation including increasing my confidence level that is now reflected in my voice.
Michael is incredibly warm and easy to work with. I was struggling with holding my breath and he gave me some terrific advice on letting go of that extra tension. He made me feel comfortable instantly. I look forward to working more together.
