I have been teaching actors and singers for ten years. I taught Acting, Voice & Speech, and Theatre History at The University of California at Irvine; I've also taught youth Shakespeare and Improv at Utah Shakespeare Festival, and I have extensive private coaching experience as well. My background and strengths are in truthful scene study, Shakespeare, and Improv Comedy. I believe traditional, Stanislavski based acting training should be the backbone of an actors work. I beleive in in-depth scene study and analysis. In addition, I believe that improvision, instict and an actors natural story telling ability should not be forgotten. In my work I try to synthesize these ideas to help bring out honest as well as innovataive performances from my students.
