I define my work as a self-awakening process through art exposure. I work with actors and non-actors. I guide my students to find an alignment between their personal truth connected to their character so the professional is able to relieve emotional conflicts and bring balance to their lives. I work intensely with self-knowledge and together we find a new and real meaning to truthfully live any role or face any given moment, in stage but also and most important, in life. We also improve the students’ ability to listen and accept whatever is thrown their way by reacting naturally and spontaneously so they build real connections with thei ... View Profile

As a professional actor with over 20 years of experience, I know what it takes to be successful on stage. And I've spent the last 10 years passing that knowledge on to students of all ages. Audition coaching, scene study, rehearsal help, improvisation, everything I do is aimed towards making sure you give the best performance you can.   Acting is tapping into your ability to pretend and imagine, and that's my approach. We analyze the piece, discuss how and why the character feels the way they do, and then craft a believable performance based on the student's own experiences and their ability to imagine themselves in other situations ...
