In this city of a thousand acting teachers, keep in mind that very few of them have any experience in casting. Every day I get to direct actors to give bookable performances for the top casting directors, directors, ad agencies and companies in the world, but only my students get to learn from my experience.

I keep my class sizes very small so we can achieve giant leaps of growth together in every class. I choose the right material to challenge you to get to the next level. Together, regardless of your previous experience, we can get you trained for on-camera acting quickly and help you grow in ways you might never have expected.
