"You're not simply entitled to be an actor. You're not an actor just because you call yourself one. You earn it. You earn it by working."
In addition to teaching & coaching, I have been a working actor in Los Angeles, New York and Albuquerque for the last 35 years. In 1996, I found my way to the studio of Larry Moss in Santa Monica, CA. In Larry, I found an amazing teacher who provided a place to grow in a safe and nurturing environment. I have been studying with him ever since.
While living in Los Angeles, I also had the invaluable experience of working in casting for Film, Television and Commercials. Doing so gave me a rare and unique look at “what happens in the room” before the actor walks in for their audition and after they leave. I am so grateful to the Casting Directors who let me into their worlds and taught me so much about the process
These amazing teachers and Casting Directors have helped me grow as an actor, artist and person. I am proud to be able to take what I have learned from them and pass it on to this generation and, hopefully, the next.
