Coaching

I was always the one who coached my friends with their auditions.

After one booked a significant part in a New York City production; he encouraged me to pursue teaching, professionally. 

 

My initial exposure to formal technique was a two year Meisner program with William Esper in Manhattan.  After I completed, my hunger to continue to grow and evolve as an actress persisted. I always wanted to learn more about the craft. I sought out acting teachers with different techniques and philosophies to challenge and widened my skills as an actress, and consequently, as an acting teacher.

 

My focus is two-fold. One, I want the actor to have a workable understanding of Given Circumstance so, they can approach their work from a solid foundation. Second, I strive to help actors access and use the present moment, the imagination and their memories to personalize these given circumstances.    

Throughout the last fifteen years, I’ve taught at; 

 

- John Robert Powers

- New York Film Academy 

- Rutgers University 

- Michael Howard Studios

- Anthony Meindl Studios

 

I have now parlayed my experience into private coaching in Los Angeles.
