I am a coach who is committed to the evolution, the life style and the transformation of my students.
Every actor I train becomes empowered to be the best, most professional Artist they are capable of being. I am thoroughly inspired and fulfilled by guiding each actor to his or her potential.
Thus providing the audience, as well as the actor, with healing, social evolution, and inspired performances that leave the viewer forever transformed.
It is my intention to train actors who shift the paradigm of film, television, and theatre…
Actors who transform themselves and humanity in the process.
