A little bit about my background...
Hi! I'm currently a graduate teaching associate at UNO, where I teach Intro to Film. As a lifetime member of the Actors Studio, I've studied acting rigorously since 1992 in both New York and Los Angeles with legendary teachers. I'm also highly skilled in a wide variety of other techniques including Meisner, Physical Comedy and Clown, Shakespeare, Classics, Mask, and DE Vocal technique for actors. I've coached several series regulars, both local and those in town on film/TV shoots, and was dialect coach to the Gillian Jacobs and Scottie Thompson in The Lookalikes, starring Justin Long, which was shot in NOLA in 2014.
Lately my greatest interest is in directing, screenwriting and teaching -- I have a passion for compelling stories and strongly believe that we walk among unsung heroes, daily! I will always love acting, but that other stuff makes me, like, insanely happy.
Some acting credits:
