Hi, my name is Brian and I love helping actors hone their craft, discover characters, and dig into their scenes.
My goal is to help you connect with your authentic self and audition from a place of power.
As a reader, I help conduct audition technique classes, so I know what casting directors are looking for and can help identify any potential red flags you may be sending.
Need Dialect Help? I am trained in... New York, Tidewater, CLS, Minnesota, RP, Cockney, Irish, Northern Irish, German, and Arabic.
I am a professional actor who works in film, TV, animation, VO, and audiobooks. You may have seen me in Season 2 of "The Chosen" or have listened to one of my audiobooks.
Let's make something awesome!
