|Whether your an actor, performer, musician or storyteller, the alchemy of turning words into actions, creating an emotive expression of story and character into an experiential reality for an audience is a powerful gift.
The path is littered with passionate, talented people who hide their hearts, feel unworthy or mistake identity with truth. More than any other creative endeavor, people who use their most personal tools (face, body, voice) to reflect a different emotional reality for an audience need a "mirror" to guage and shape the truth and conviction of their depiction.
As an award-winning director of film and stage, and an actor in both mediums, I have a deep love and understanding of performers and their process. The crucible of connecting your heart to the material and your tools of expression is where the magic happens.
Having spent time with the legendary Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio West in Los Angeles and being mentored by iconic director Sydney Pollack, I bring my heart, years of experience and a stong vision to focus your process of interpretation.
Here are some of the services available to you:
Scene work, audition prep, character analysis, stage presence, improvisation, dialog coaching, bringing emotion through music and any other performance issues you can legally do in front of an audience.
