Call Me Coach.
Maybe my favorite title?
Growing up I always wanted to be a teacher like my parents. After earning my MFA in Acting from Academy of Art University in San Francisco I started taking 1:1 students for coaching sessions and I never expected to find such a passion in this work. I have students from Massachusetts to New York, to LA and the Bay Area. I've helped them build their craft and audition techniques, prepare for grad school auditions, book their first film role, start writing their first feature film and I can't wait to see what comes next for each student. My forte is helping my students set individualized goals and take actionable steps towards that goal. There's no such thing as a a one-size-fits-all program when it comes to acting. Let's get specific, find your individual areas of growth, and let's get to work!
Does your University have a small acting cohort, leading to class offerings that stick to the fundamentals? Help your students grow outside their comfort zones with workshops in Alexander Technique, Linklater Voice and Speech Work, and Introductions to Meisner & moment-to-moment.
Is your theatre putting up their first musical and you want to help your actors feel confident going into a dance call? Try out my Introduction to Musical Theatre Choreography Workshop.
