Note from the instructor:

“I believe the secret for actors is to have excellent teachers/mentors on their journey. I have taught actors for over 35 years, and the one thing that is very very clear to me is like in any profession, those that train and work hard do the best, and are of course the most fulfilled.

I began my career by teaching child actors on the set of Disney, MGM & Universal Studios, and was lucky enough to teach students like McCully Culkin, Keri Russell, Ryan Gosling and many other child stars. I worked on location and sound stages for TV sitcoms and feature films. At Nickelodeon I taught Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains it All), and Mario Lopez of (Saved By The Bell). I enjoyed working on many Universal movies like 'Passenger 57' with Wesley Snipes, and 'Matinee' with John Goodman, and a TV series called “Heavens to Betsy” with Dolly Parton. Working 6 years in Orlando and being “in front” and “behind” the camera prepared me very well to understand the business. 

My approach is very hands-on and customized for each student. I teach all levels and ALL ages … I love what I do."
