COACHING

 
 

All in a day’s work…

I have always been passionate about theatre and interested in its continued sustainability in this age of constant, inexpensive digital media. After a successful career on Broadway, in feature films and voiceover, I moved to the Bay Area and concentrated on teaching master classes in acting, vocal coaching, monologues, dance and improvisation while dabbling in directing. I have subsequently established a successful private studio and now that my twins are in pre-school, I am looking forward to the next phase of my professional life.

BROADWAY DEBUT
