Acting Coach

Hi Lovelies!

 

With over 15 years of experience, I offer on camera audition coaching for all ages, as well as pre-set filming coaching, on set coaching for studios, and coaching for newer actors looking to level up their performance skills.

 

In working with actors of all ages, I like to focus on finding humanity and specificity in the work. A life long learner and actor myself, I am always growing and learning both on my own and from my students. In my classes, I pull from a lot of different techniques from Chubbuck to Meisner to Krakower to Alexander and more.

 

I love:

  • Sharing techniques and tools to help actors dive deeper into living the full truth of dramatic emotional scenes

  • Working with students on finding truth and contrast in comedy for those laugh out loud moments

  • Helping actors find an in to connect to and become challenging characters

  • Sorting how to tape auditions with difficult stage directions

  • Helping actors make sense of and perform generally confusing scenes and auditions

  •  Helping actors identify and break through their blocks 

  • Working with actors on how to healthily get into and out of deeper emotional states

  • Helping actors learn to breakdown scripts and how to honor the writing while still bringing their unique selves and perspectives to each role

I teach both in person and virtually. I have created and taught multiple unique curriculums. I am currently teaching, have taught, or will be teaching soon:

Emotional Access (six week in person class)

Craft, Camera, and Career Ongoing (coming soon)

Acting the Actions (one day workshop on adjusting physicality for self tapes)
