I have worked with several award winning actors, directors, and producers and have treated each day on set like a master class. I have used my time as a professional actress to grow in the art in all forms. I have recently worked on a film for 8 weeks and found that all my co-stars wanted to rehearse their scenes for feedback before we shot. I loved working and learning the different styles and methods an actor takes to reach their objective. It instilled a desire in me to extend this service to others and help them find the moments and the truth to really bring their character and scene to life. Whether it is for yourself, a class, an auditi ... View Profile

I taught acting for 5 years discovering and developing a processs that creates a life and spirit to the character you are cast to play. The process triggers the instincts with which we are born. Anybody can learn the process and is irrelevant of one's personality. The key is the desire to learn. Whether one wants to become an engineer, a teacher, a carpenter or an actor, it will not happen without the desire to learn the skills.If you are a seasoned actor, I will work with you on monologues, plays an ...

Sarah Deaver, Audition/Acting Coach

My main effort is to get you to the callback. Once there, the work changes and goals shift, but the initial audition is what means the most to your agent and to casting and should mean the most to you. There's no job if you can't get past round 1. No matter the scene/script I believe that variety is the spice of life. If your scene does not have turns and shifts and opposites (ie - if your choices are not incredibly specific) then your acting will be uninteresting and you will be forgotten.  Ultimately my goal is to get you to the place where you no longer feel as though you need a coach but have the confidence and knowledge to prep your ...
