About this pro

I am a working actor. I will keep you in the loop of what new projects are out there that would match your type.  I am also a creator, so while I will be your acting coach, I will also give you valuable advise on the business of acting and help you manifest your multidimensionality in the entertainment industry. You will begin to see that you can take actions with your career, as it is yours. 

Acting is my soul.  The fact that I get to share my knowledge and my love, my passion with a fellow actor is just superb and surreal.  It is a career where like minded people bring out the best in each other and provide quality support and nurture for the craft.

FAQs


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

It's important to understand the students' level.  

Step 1. Perform 2 contrasting monologues (2min max)

Step 2. Prepare for feedback and assess if students' can follow directions.

Step 3. Work on vocal technique to freeing the voice so the actor can be on voice. Lots of exercises to warming up the ranges of the voice. 

Step 4. The body is important and an actor needs to feel his/herself in their body. Lots of floor exercises and stretches, so a mat is needed. 

Step 5. Script analysis and subtext 

Step 6. Character development through techniques such as: Meisner and Stanislavki (advance students would be guided into Method acting)

Step 7. To grow the actors belt, classic training in speaking the text, such as: Shakespeare and Chekhov will help to develop the actor

Step 8. Film and TV acting, the do's and don't(s) of: slating on camera, body language, vocal volume, and the intimacy of the camera lens   

Step 9. The business of acting (The Tool Kit): Website, Headshots & resume, wardrobe, postcards, the difference btwn agents & managers, casting directors, and being your own boss-writing your own material

Step 10. Where to find auditions 


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

As a child I was a member of the prestigous Little People & Teen Players Club in New Kingston, JA. I also won 2nd place on the entire island in a school competition at age 8. 

As an teen, I was the president of my high school drama club at North Miami Senior High. 

As a young man, I got a scholarship to study Theater (BFA) at Florida International University (FIU).

Today as an adult, I am a union actor with Actors Equity Association and am SAG-Eligible (waiting on the perfect time to join). I have acted at Tony Award Winning Theaters, I have done commercials, tv-shows, and have been nominated for Best Actor in a film that was released in 2017 for the festival circuit. The film got accepted into 13 festivals, internationally. Currrently, in 2018, I have created a TV-Show entitled #SOCIETY and we are currently in production. I am also cast in an upcoming TV-Show entitled H.I.T.S. (Heroes In These Streets) I play a young politician on the rise! 

Other training involves a conservatory program, a political science degree, and private coaches: T. Schreiber Studio & Theater, Fordham University, Jeffrey Zeiner, and Marc Jones

I am represented by Green key Management LLC and Innovative Artist. 

Besides acting, I am also a model (which is like silent acting).
