Emmy Award Winner David T. has over 33 years of acting experience in Film, TV and Stage. He is best known World-wide for his role on “The Young and the Restless” where he received 3 Emmy nominations and won his first Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Billy Abbott. He has the experience and training to coach actors who are either beginning their journey with acting or are well experienced actors who are looking to bring more color and light to their work. so they will stand out in front of the casting director & make their tape unique from the rest. Acting is my passion, and I love to share that passion with others so they may reach their dreams of becoming a working actor.

As a working actor on stage and screen for the majority of my life, with family who worked as professionals in the performing arts arena, and the continuing education and ever-growing contact list to help guide you through the ever-changing landscape of the film industry, I am here to help you! Are you a young person, watching your favorite actors on tv thinking, I bet I could be really good at that! Or someone fresh out of college thinking, now what? (That was me) Maybe you've been working in live theatre and want to transition to film acting? How do you choose what city to live in? When should I get an agent or manager? How do I get an agent or manager? What do agents and managers do? How do agents and managers get paid? Where do I find auditions? How do I negotiate? What is a "package"? I have the answers to all of these questions and more! From putting together your package, to scene analysis, monologue preparation, working off of other characters, understanding the business side of film, to simply knowing how to behave and interact with others on set, I've got your back! And if I don't know the answer, I have mentors, coaches, colleagues, and friends that I can ask and find out! Ready to take your acting career to the next level? Let's go!

I am a highly engaging and truly devoted teacher. In every session, we will work on a scene or monologue and you'll be guided through the entire process of acting with a focus on camera technique. Learning script analysis, character development, imagination strengthening, audition technique, expressivity, mastery of the mechanisms of the body & voice, and confidence like you've never known!

Hi and Welcome! In addition to holding a Masters Degree in Acting from New York University, I have been a professional working actor for over 30 years and have been fortunate to work on Broadway, Off-Broadway, in television and film. I teach Acting to all ages and skill levels, as well as Singing Performance (focuses on the 'story" of the song, not technique). Whether you are pursuing acting as a profession or not, the benefits of theater training can be profound on many levels. We humans love to play. We love stories. I encourage fellow actors to be confident, joyful, and fearless with their creativity. I teach emotional literacy, empathy, and the value of failing well and often. I inspire actors to build their own "arsenal" of tools that will serve you throughout your creative life. For professionals, I am happy to work on audition material, monologues, and scenes. For young artists, I am thrilled to work on auditions for BFA programs, scholarships, summer intensives, and more. For beginners who are simply interested in trying something new, your creativity is your GOLD, and I am excited to work with you as you treat yourself to exploring the world of storytelling and as you honor what YOU have to say. Time to leap!
