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.
