I have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience and have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio).I have a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts with a focus on acting, Academia.com holds some of my work and I can certainly offer more.
I have always been an actor first, simultaneously I have believed that teacher's are born not bred. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am both, an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those facts. Peace and Kind Regards

I have performed on the off-loop Chicago stage in numerous roles for a variety of companies. And really, that is part of what an actor needs to learn about the business of being an actor. Make no mistake it is a business; you are your own product. Personally, I have received great reviews and I never stopped training, always took/taking classes, forming groups and most importantly staying in touch with the agencies that work to book work for me.

I offer more practical work in acting as well, please review my background and I also invite you to review the institutions where I learned what I know, earned my degrees and make me the teacher your reviewing at t his moment.

I have been trained in many area of the theatre, acting certainly is my forte. Having been out there, waiting in some casting director's office (after waiting a year to get him to know I was alive), an office filled with a bunch of ginger lookalikes. It was a Ron Weasley festival.

Along with the anecdotes very specific approaches are required to get the call-back. The way one reads, holds the paper, relates to the camera, how the speak in quality and manner are all items that need to be addresses just under this one heading. I have many categories for which I am available. I am malleable and tend toward tailoring the work to the student.
