As an actor, I understand the importance of being comfortable on camera. As a writer, I can help you navigate the sometimes confusing text you're asked to perform. As a director, I can help get you to your best performance.

Be it monologues, scene study, or improv, I can help you zero in on your best performance and best audition.

Acting is living. Let me help you find the life in your performance.

I have been performing in Los Angeles and San Diego on stage, screen, and as a voice actor for the last ten years. When I’m not acting, I direct and I teach screenwriting. My extensive experience on set both in front of and behind the camera has given me unique insight into the acting and casting process.
