What background do you have in acting? Do you have an agent? Gone on auditions? Taken any training?

I work professionally as an actor in film, television and commercials. Yes, yes, yes.

What skill level do you consider yourself? ( Beginner, intermediate, advanced)

We are all beginners in the study of the human condition.

What do you hope to achieve by attending these weekly sessions?

I hope to help and guide actors to find their way through this maze of the acting business. I hope to be that insightful teacher that doesn’t direct you but instead, uncovers your walls and helps you to focus so you can break through them; a teacher that tells you where to look but not what to see.  As Stella Adler said:"It is first necessary to make a human being out of them before one can make an actor."

With what techniques are you familiar and/or experienced? Works by Stella Adler? The Meisner Method? Michael Shurtleff? Uta Hagen? Lee Strasberg? Stanislavski?


How serious and committed are you? Dabbling for fun because it sounds easy, or want to spill your guts and bare your soul? Passionate about it as a career despite the risks and sacrifices? Willing to dive into a dumpster when hungry?

Completely. “Acting is standing up naked and turning around very slowly.” Rosalind Russell


I am a film/TV actor, model; professional, under a pseudonym. I am a founding member and Organizer of Filmmakers Network, Acting for Real and the Screenwriter's Corner Meetups, and Organizer of a few other meetups. I look forward to meeting you!
