I’m a professional stage and screen actor and acting coach with a combined experience of almost twenty years.

I’m hoping that I can help you with your next audition, or first-time scene preparation if you are new to this. I have worked with all levels of acting experience, from absolute beginners to long established veterans.

Some of my areas of expertise include; blocking for camera, character development, emotional context of scenes, and an extensive range of dialects. I can read and perform in a vast range of accents as required.

- I offer insights & services in many areas including -

- Breakdown and scene analysis for audition

- Character backgrounds & their relationships

- Making castable physical and emotive choices

- Memorization Techniques that are easy and work

- Costume and props (props should always be minimal)

- Advanced Camera Techniques for the tricky stuff (Hugging, Kissing, Fighting, etc.)

- On Camera Stage Combat Audition techniques.

- Self Tape editing; including audio and video encoding services on your behalf or just advice and guidance.

- Career guidance on Agents and Managers, Acting Classes, Callback’s etc.

I have worked in both Europe and North America and appeared onscreen with some of Hollywood’s leading actors including; Henry Cavill, Eva Green, Sam Neill, Jonathan Rhys Myers, Neal McDonough, and Steven Williams. I have also got to work with the amazing cast of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones.

I have also trained under several internationally recognized names throughout North America, including; Clair Sinnett - Los Angeles, The Actors Connection L.A, Mel Tuck, and Kirsten Clarkson.

For your scene-work, let's begin with sending me your scene breakdown and script a few minutes before we start the session. This way I am not wasting your time familiarizing myself with your scene and the characters involved. Working this way will allow us to get straight into the scene after we have had a chance to say hi.

If I am am not online please feel free to email me your sides and breakdown material and request a time for reading or coaching.

I will reply promptly between the hours of 10am - 10pm Pacific Time.

I look forward to connecting with you! 😊
