Have you blown an audition simply because you had a bad reader for your self-tape or in-camera audition? Yeah, let's not let that happen.

I've been a professional actor for 15+ years. I have a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts and want to help YOU book the part! I am all about storytelling and helping to tell the best story with YOU! I also sing and am happy to help with any music-related auditions. You want a reader who can understand how to break down a script properly and give YOU, the actor, something REAL to work with? Say no more.

Hit that button and let's get booking!

Tips greatly appreciated.
