I have been a Screen Actor's Guild and AFTRA member since the 1980's and have real experience as a working actor. I have had a contract roles on soap operas, recurred 18 times as Dr. Beresford on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and have had numerous episodic TV roles. I usually coach actors for on-camera work, either with scripts they provide -- or I can help you find a scene or monologue that's right for you to work on.
SAG-AFTRA represents approximately 160,000 actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other media professionals. SAG-AFTRA members are the faces and voices that entertain and inform America and the world. With national offices in Los Angeles and New York, and local offices nationwide, SAG-AFTRA members work together to secure the strongest protections for media artists into the 21st century and beyond.Show More
Steven really helped my get my work to "industry-level". My callback ratio is thru the roof, and I got signed with an agency after only a few months of working with him.
While he isn't available very much, I always try to coach with Stephen for challenging projects. He always has good ideas for how to make my scenes more interesting or funny.
Stephen is the best! He was able to turn sides I had for a short four line audition for an episodic into a taped audition that booked me the job. I try to book him for every important audition I have.
I studied with Stephen when he taught an On-Camera workshop in Hollywood. He is an incredible teacher and also had great tips about how to succeed in a really tough business.
