Theatre Director and Writer - Specialising in audition preparation, professional development and public speaking

Methodology

Preparation for a role
Preparation for auditions
Approaching Shakespeare
Exploring physicality and actors movement
Management and agent mentoring
Networking advice

These sessions also provide an opportunity for actors to experiment outside of the audition and rehearsal room, with styles and texts in ways that will stretch them as performers. I can also recommend and introduce clients to a variety of specialists in speech & accent coaching, singing, movement and dance where required.

Many of my clients have gained places at top UK drama schools including, RADA, LAMDA, East 15, Drama Centre London and Guildhall.
