About this pro

My service stands out because you receive one on one coaching that is tailor made to your needs as an actor! Whatever method works for you is how we will go about our business every session. I travel to all of my students, because I want them to feel like they're in a familiar and comfortable place while they are performing and being coached. Being in familiar surroundings allows my students to be loose and take risks right off the bat. This is VERY important. Students must be able to completely let go off all fear and 110% own the room. Once they get over that we are able to explore so many other layers. While I do also recommend taking occasional group classes, you should always have a private acting coach to give you that one on one dedication that you don't always get in a group class.  I am a professional stage actor hailing from the Chicago area. I proudly hold a Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degree in Musical Theatre from Drake University, and I have been performing in stage productions since the age of 7.  I have studied many acting methods, such as Stanislavski, Meisner, Strasburg, Chekhov, Shakespeare, & Restoration. Whether you prefer one method or a combination of several methods, I am here to help you discover your strengths as an actor! Together we will find out which method or methods we can use to create a custom style for you to excel as an actor! I also teach juggling and stage combat. I provide coaching to all experience levels, and I am here to help you nail your next audition: high school auditions all the way up through professional auditions. I look forward to potentially going on a journey of acting discovery with you!

I enjoy creating a collaborative process with my students!  Every student is different, and I want to create a learning process that you are 100% comfortable with, as well as one that plays to your strengths.  Some methods that work for one student may not work for another.  I will guide my students on the path that I feel they should take, but I also encourage them to bring their own ideas to the table!  Together we will work as a team towards one common goal: to make you a stronger actor by going on a journey of self discovery!
