About this pro

During this crazy time in life, getting face to face is not easy, so I am also offering Skype or FaceTime or Zoom coachings as well as at my home studio. I focus on the audition, on BOOKING THE JOB and usually offer private coachings and self-tape auditions in Marietta.

I have starred on several TV series and films.
I won the Soap Opera Digest Award and was nominated for an Emmy.

From All My Children to The Jeff Foxworthy Show, since I moved to Atlanta from Los Angeles I am a recurring character, the #pawnshopguy on the #1 show in the world, Cobra Kai on Netflix, and constantly working on other shows.

Actors grow every day. I do. You do. We learn from each other. Giving or getting an idea that makes us stand out is what it’s all about. I enjoy shaping a student’s performance, helping you evolve. I take your raw talent and help you shine.

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

Finding out the level of knowledge and experience and building on it. Taking the raw talent and shaping it.

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

I taught for several years with a very popular school in L.A., then here in Atlanta. I parted ways with that program to give you More for Less. Most important, I work a lot as an actor because what I know and teach works.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Typically a 1 hour lesson is $50. This includes working on material, then taping it and playing it back for you to see how you did.

I also offer coaching for self-tape auditions, taping & editing your audition and emailing it to you for upload and to keep.

How did you get started teaching?

Someone many years ago taught me a few things that have led to a long career as a working actor. I am paying it forward. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Kids through adults. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Proud of and grateful for the release of Cobra Kai on Netflix and the release of the vide game MAFIA, in which I play Sergio Morello. It's huge. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Choose a teacher that has a long and current history of acting work, because you need to work with someone who is walking the walk, not just talking.  

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Do I really want this?

Do I care enough to work at it?

Do I want to have fun doing it?

If you answered Yes to all 3, come get started.
