I believe strongly in setting my students up to succeed.  I help students develop clear goals to work towards, offer techniques for accessing difficult material, and set up clear practice guidlines so that their practice is yielding results.  My hope is to instill a sense of process in my students and do away with the paralysis that comes from not knowing where to begin when given new material. When we are working I use diverse strategies to help my students find honest connection to the material.  There is great joy and freedom in having the opportunity to try and fail and learn together.  ...

Many artists young and old fall into the trap of paying ridiculous amounts of money for the "opportunity" to be a "star". The truth is,  if you are looking for stardom, then my instruction is not for you.  Stardom is not my focus.  My focus is to help you reveal the artists/ actor within you by peeling back one layer at a time allowing you to reach, express and connect to new levels of vulnerability and believability in your character. Too many times I come across students that are looking for a quick and easy path.... that's not what acting is.  You have to be willing to do the work. You have to be willing to uncover the ...

I am a British stage and tv actor, including having been a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company. I began as a Mime artist and I work in mask and movement movement as well as on text.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by, here are my most frequently asked questions... When did you start acting? 1999 (Before then actually, I used to tug my mom's waist and say "Momma I want to memorize!") Where are you from? Dallas, TX.  Have you ever lived in Los Angeles or New York? I lived in Los Angeles five and a half years before relocating to the DMV area (3 years ago) Who taught you how to act?

I believe that the actor represents the people who can't say what they want so they speak for them, they share a message which will challenge the audience to grow and/or expand their horizons, and hopefully the actor can grow as an artist and human being for the positive.  By looking within the story my aim is to collaborate with the Actor to find the truth of the character by looking within the text and character as a whole. I look forward to working with any Actor, no matter the age, culture or belief. I want it to be a safe zone where you have room to take chances and fall on your face with experimenting in your part.
