About this pro

With years working as an actor and model in the film industry, I am ready to help take your acting to the next level! Having taught other actors how to nail an audition, empathize with their character, or become a better actor in general, I am ready to take my teaching to an online platform.

I love teaching acting because of the quick progress I see in my students. Having them go from a place of uncertainty to confidence in themselves as actors is what I aim for. Helping the client to book auditions continues to put a smile on my face. Let's do this!

  • Micah S

    I can't even begin to tell you how useful this class has been for me! He really knows his stuff and is good at communicating. Highly recommended!

  • Amber Leon

    This class was an invaluable experience, I can’t wait to take the skills that I’ve learned and apply them throughout my acting career. The main takeaway from this class was learning how to ACTUALLY “feel” when acting, rather than acting how to “feel.” This is a skill that I was unable to master until taking this class. I would absolutely recommend this class to a friend and have already recommended it to several of my friends and family members.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We begin with an assessment of the student's skill level. This means gauging how believable a character is, what micro mannerisms and gestures interfere with believability, and overall confidence level. 

Then, we get to work. I like to focus on improvisational skills first, because I believe this is fundamental for an actor, even one that relies heavily on the script. Let me tell you, in my experiences on film sets, I was always grateful to have the ability to improvise. And directors love it! 

Lastly, we do some work on script analysis. How are we to interpret a character? What choices can we make to make our audition pop? By the end of our lessons, you will feel confident that you will be able to book an audition. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have an associates degree in Theater from Louisiana College, where I studied Acting, Directing, voice for the actor, and screenplay analysis. 

I have taken several acting courses with an acting coach that appeared on shows like House and Curb Your Enthusiasm. 

Lastly, and most importantly, I have experienced the high stress and demand of the film industry. The nervousness one feels before an audition, and how to handle that pressure is something I have learned from experience. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My price is $25 per hour. I wanted to keep my price low because I believe that actors should not be charged ridiculous amounts to improve their artform. It's my joy to share this information with others.


How did you get started teaching?

I began, actually, while I was a theater major. By then I was already booking auditions and growing as an actor. I began unofficially giving lessons to friends, but eventually, I realized, "Hey, other people could benefit from what I learned too." 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with anyone from theater majors, actors looking to break into the film industry, or professional actors wanting to improve their craft. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Watch out for money grabbers. Sadly, many acting teachers have never had any real experience of their own. They teach, having never done. Look for acting professors that have experience in the film industry or in theater productions at the least.  


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

It's important to ask, what kind of actor do I want to be? There are actors that "present" and actors that "represent." The "presenters" feel from deep within, which affects their every move, tone, and mannerism; these are the best actors for film. The actors that "represent" are those that are, to some degree, pretending to be sad, happy, etc. These may be "larger than life" with intention on "representing" the character. These are often some of the best actors for theater productions since the actors are so far away.
