I delight in exciting, engaging and adventurous theatre and film. As a teacher and coach, I believe in honing the instincts of the actor and helping actors overcome personal tensions or blocks that hinder their own progress and development. 

I love working with actors of all ages, and have extensive experience teaching teens, elementary and college students. My teaching assignments have ranged from at-risk students in inner city schools to elite private preparatory academies, from Maine to Florida.  I taught for seven years for a top-ranked Manhattan afterschool program.  I currently teach at University of North Carolina - Greensboro and was an adjunct at College of St Elizabeth in New Jersey.

Some of my private students have gone on to be accepted at BFA programs at NYU (Tisch), Hofstra, FSU, UCF, Palm Beach Atlantic University, and Virginia Commonwealth University.

I am available for one-on one coaching, group classes, and in-school long-term or single-class residencies.  Please contact me for rates and available curriculums.
