    I took an on-camera class with Adrian, and it was a game-changer. By talking to me as a fellow actor, artist, and human, he got straight to the heart of the scene. I let myself feel both vulnerable and powerful. What he does is like coaching, but it's also kind of like persuasion. He's the Actor Whisperer. I loved taking class with Adrian. He rocks!


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

Generally, I look at any and all online material of the actor to get a sense of the performers strengths and weaknesses. If the actor does not have a website or other material, they will be requested to provide one and post on youtube, just so I can get a sense of who they are. 

My approach is 'on your feet' as you do the scene in question and I will provide the insights that have helped make me a working actor, and that I have learned from casting directors on both coasts, award winning directors, and my own trial and error.
