Reads for free & accepts tips
HI! I am an AEA and SAG-E actor, singer, and improviser who recently appeared opposite Hugh Jackman, Allison Janney and Ray Romano in "Bad Education" (HBO).
I have 25-30 years of extensive training in theater and on-camera work with master teachers such as Patsy Rodenberg (Shakespeare), Bob Krakower (on-camera technique), Chris Bayes (clown and commedia), Carol Fox Prescott (breath work), Stephen Wangh and Erica Fae (Growtowski work), and decades of improvisation training with Michael Gellman (Second City), Gary Austin (The Groundlings), Amy Pohler, Matt Walsh and Matt Besser (UCB), Dave Razowsky and others.
I'm great with complex/technical language (I went to law school when I was a baby), improvisation, comedy, classical texts.
I love working with fellow actors in whatever way is helpful for you. Just reading my lines, or giving suggestions/notes, or just coming up with fun ways to shake it up in the rehearsal process.
Just starting out on weaudition, so happy to work with you for free, but tips are always welcome!
