I love training people who crave to be good actors and are committed and dedicated to making a living being an actor.

i not only train you as an actor. I coach you on the Business of acting which is equally as important.

I also introduce you TLC adting directors and agents who can get you work.

I have been doing this for over 20 years and it brings me enormous joy in watching actors fulfill their dreams.

Paul Michael, of the Network, has created a supported environment for artists to create, learn and grow.  He uses his knowledge and experience of the industry to teach both the acting and business sides of acting. His vast connections in the industry makes him a natural fit for actors seeking to meet with casting directors, agents, playwrights and other industry professionals. What I love about Paul is he gets to know each and every actor individually and guides them on a personalized career path. He has nurtured phenomenal artists at the Network. He and the Network are true gems!

I began teaching in my masters program in MN amd realized I had an enormous gift to share with my students. 

After many years, I began teaching both acting and the business of acting simultaneously and have had enormous success with many actors. 

Broadway actors looking to break I to film a d television who need on camera training. 

actors fresh out of college who need more training as well as business of acting coaching 

I recently formed a TV and film production company and have about 14 students of mine working with me to develop this professional endeavor which will employ many actors, directors and writers. 

Follow your gut. Ask around and see what people have to say about your choices. 

Are you committed?

How much time are you willing to dedicate to your acting training?

Do you really want to be an actor? Are you thick skinned and can you take feedback?
