An Actor must always be honing his craft. Like a sculptor, her tools must be sharp and her vision must be focused. Each new script and role presents new challenges in bringing a character to life. My approach focuses on tuning and guiding the actor through mental relaxation, script analysis and concrete technique. My job is to eliminate your fear by strengthening your abilities and emboldening your craft so that you can serve the character with confidence and freedom. My goal is make you so prepared, so ready, so free, that creating a character isn’t a burden, but a joy.
