We begin with training of the body for the ability to be relaxed and ready for anything, working in a chair in the Lee Strasburg system, releasing tensions and assessing the difference and working week by week on the sense memory exercises to build up the strength of imagination and elemental response and creativity. We also work with theatre games as well as analytical techniques.

Growing up in Los Angeles, California I have inherited many of my creative gifts from her Grandmother Connie Russell a famous singer and actress and her Grandfather Michael Zimring, an agent for William M. Agency. They gave me a great appreciation and understanding of what it took to be successful as an artist. I started my career by doing modeling at age five and went on to do dance performances at age seven. I continued to broaden her horizon by acting in plays, painting and singing. Later in life I took these gifts and decided to teach adults, and children the importance of self confidence and creativity. I have worked in many organizations with the intention to ...
A student of mine can expect a caring and honest approach to the development of particular acting skills from comedy (slapstick) to tragedy. The history of the art will be stressed; exercise come second. I have played in the fields of Hollywood which has given me an understanding of the rigors of job search and the need for a positive attitude when searching for work as an actor.
I've spent most of my life in the performing arts either on stage as actor & director, as voice over in film & video, as well as constant work at the writing desk. I love and respect actors. To seriously address yourself to the art and discipline of acting is no easy task. In a way you must become a psychologist, historian, and an overall lover of humanity.
