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

I like to get to know who the student is.  What is their history?  What movies did they watch growing up?  What type of actor do they want to be?  Why did they become an actor?  I want to make sure that each actor is comfortable and able to give unhibitated performances to get to their core and achieve their goals.

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

I have trained in theatre at Maryland University, film at Azusa Pacific University, and I train every week at Anthony Miendl's.
