Hello! This is my story.

The pursuit of Acting has and always will be the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. I, like most of us, felt like it was something I could do, but did not feel particularly ‘chosen’ enough to make a conscious choice. When I finally decided ten years ago to get over myself, go full bore and uproot to Los Angeles (now New York City) to pursue that inkling – it was the moment my life actually began… Acting is a wonderful and diverse craft to learn, but perhaps the greatest tool obtained from it is the unflinching bravery needed to dive deep within yourself.

In this class, we will study the basics and the history of the theater, but with a close eye on how it effects the individual and where you see yourself in all of this. Each one of us is an artist brimming with material, it’s just a matter of unlocking that material and being confident enough to give it to the World. By combining a traditional historical approach to gain proper reverence for the trail blazers, with our own brand of goofiness to build a ‘sauce’ for yourself – we will all become better people and phenomenal actors in the process. You all can do it!!!!
