*I'm now fully vaccinated and starting to take on new students for in-person instruction, and will continue to offer Zoom / remote instruction for those who prefer zoom, or who are not vaccinated. I look forward to a return to in-person while continuing to utilize technology to its fullest!*
I am an actor, director, filmmaker, and theater artist, creating work that physically engages, intellectually inspires, and curiously interprets the world in which we live. I've worked as a professional actor in the DC metro area since 2010, and have since begun working professionally as a Director, a Young Company Coordinator, and Assistant Director at many DC-area and MD theaters, including The Kennedy Center, Imagination Stage, Ford's Theatre, Studio Theatre, Synetic Theater, Theatre J, and more. I started coaching acting students in 2014 and my students have gone on to star in shows Off-Broadway, in Regional Theaters including Olney Theatre Center, Ford's Theatre, The Kennedy Center, and Toby's Dinner Theatre, on Television, in Web Series, in the feature film Harriet, and more. In my spare time, I teach and practice yoga. I want to do a headstand on every continent. I'm a visual artist, coffee and tea lover, and I'm always down to meet new people. I am an advocate for young people, and am passionate about sharing the craft of acting with teenagers, young adults, and adults who are young at heart.
Chelsea is highly knowledgeable and I am enjoying working with her! She is helping me make progress towards my specific goals and has helped me find some good resources to continue my studies and practice between lessons.
It has been a phenomenal experience since the start. Chelsea is a great teacher and has been incredibly helpful and understanding throughout each lesson.
