Professional, International MFA trained Actor and Coach offering acting/public speaking sessions in London

Methodology

I teach students of all ages (6 years old to over 60's) with all ranges of experience. I currently teach on the post-graduate courses at a drama school as well. My approach to acting and teaching is very holistic, involving the use and awareness of the body as a tool to lift text and character from the page and into being. I use various methods rooted in Stanislavski, Somatic Movement, as well as meditation and archetype.

Background

I am an American actress and acting coach here in London with experience teaching in the classroom, as a behavior and drama therapist, and acting tutor around the world. I have been an actor on stage, camera, and voice over for years as well as a professional acting and public speaking coach. My students gain confidence, an increased ability to analyze text, and a holistic physical approach to building character.
