Mask Off Acting Sessions
Have you always dreamed of being on stage or in the movies? Me too, since Kindergarten, and I'm proud to say I've accomplished my dream. I want to help you become better at your craft, and ignite that spark in you that most beginners or even experience actors don't have. Why? Because it's hard to break into this business by yourself. Trust me, I've tried it! Over the past 15 years I've performed on big stages around the country and even some of the well know stages in Houston. I've been in over 45 Theatrical/Musical Plays, 4 films, and I've written, directed, and produced my own shows...So let me be your coach! I'll train you on the following:
* Acting 101 - The Basics that Actors Forget and Miss!
* Activating Your Audition Super Powers!
* How to Book a Job and Keep It!
* How to ACT like Denzel - Creating a back story for your character (All about the details).
* How to EMOTE like Viola - Using your emotions to deliver a powerful performance.
I enjoy helping others become the best they can be in this industry!
