Teaching since:

A great teacher once told me, “the most interesting part of every story is relationships”. I believe stories help us find our common ground, our humanity. The lessons one learns through performance are invaluable tools students can bring with them no matter what they take on in the future. My philosophy on performance is focus on your truth and go from there. Students will work with me to set short term and long term goals for growth. I am currently working to produce my second feature film and preform regularly throughout the midwest with my band.

Film Acting · In studio

Nora has a profound conception of the human character and brings this subtle and perceptive insight to her directing, teaching, consulting and coaching. She has the rare ability to be able to both grasp and move quickly between big picture issues such as film theme and mood and minutiae such as gesture, body language, prop use, scene rhythm, and so forth. Additionally, having produced feature work from start to finish, Nora is able to counsel her clients and support her colleagues at every stage of film making, and can advise new actors and veterans alike as to how their specific work fits in the broader context. I would highly recommend studying with her.
