After nearly a decade of working as a professional actor in the Boston and Greater Boston areas of Massachusetts, I know a thing or 2 on how to prepare for auditions. I will use my knowledge and experience to teach anyone who is just beginning their acting career how to prepare for upcoming auditions, give tips on what casting directors are looking for, teach up-and-coming performers how to choose the right monologues and songs that best suit each individual actor, and so much more. Every actor is different, and brings something unique and special to the table. And I am willing to take the time to find and bring out what is so unique and special about each actor that comes to my class. I will create a positive, creative, and fun environment that everyone can enjoy!

I love watching performers realize their full potentials. I love watching them break through their fears, preconceived notions, doubts, embarrassments, etc. and realize that their potential is only limited by their own imagination. Getting over those things and letting go was what made me a better performer, and if I teach others how to do that, then I will feel so blessed.
