As a graduate of the prestigious North Carolina School of the Arts (Go Pickles! Lol) l, I have been well versed in numerous methodologies and techniques that I can help you to add to your actor tool box. With hard work, dedication, and an open mind, I can help you become the best actor you can be!
I’ve met so many amazingly generous and gifted people who have helped me achieve any success I might have in my life and a big part of why I chose to teach is to pay that forward. I’m interested in creating more that just actors, but future artist that will hopefully help to shape the future of our world.
Desmond coached me through finding high stakes in a challenging scene. His approach was rooted in breath work- which I find more useful than a cerebral approach. He helped me find the truth of the character that lies beneath the surface of the text.
Desi takes time with you and your process. I never felt rushed or overwhelmed. Desi’s encouragement and excitement for the work is infectious and I’d leave lessons smiling and counting down the days until our next lesson. Desi treated my like a professional from the moment we met, never talked down to me and helped me see the confidence that was there all along.
