I offer coaching text and acting as well as in finding your unique path as an artist. With a focus on classical work, this is a way to not only grow as an actor but to explore larger questions about this form, make decisions as you move through the industry, and seek where your Self encounters your Artist.
have an upcoming audition
got a note from your director that you just can't quite parse on your own
are prepping for a role
want to explore a particular element of Shakespeare's cannon
are considering a career recalibration
feel more frustrated than fulfilled with your practice or career
just wanna chat about being a human who makes art
...drop me a line and we'll see if it's a fit!
My coaching integrates body work, movement, and deep textual inquiry into the pursuit of storytelling. Having worked independently as a text and acting coach for a few years, and now as I move into offering classes, I find that one-on-one work balances and integrates beautifully with group settings and other collective training experiences.
I learn as much from those I teach as they do from me. Otherwise, I'm doing something wrong. Thanks to this, I find that everything I offer, including my work as an actor, informs my teaching and coaching. My more specific training as a teacher comes from apprenticing specifically in movement and text under Shakespeare & Company's training and education departments. I aspire to continue teaching both established and aspiring actors in a variety of environments.
