In my career, I've made a lot of mistakes.
You shouldn't have to.
Training is a crucial part of being an actor. Finding a mentor you can trust to guide you through your personal goalposts can make the difference between your dream and your reality.
If I could re-do my early steps as an actor, I would change 75% of my choices. I'm here to make sure you don't make the same mistakes I did, and more importantly to make sure you're presenting the REAL YOU in the audition room, 100% of the time. From the community theatre audition to the professional open call, I want to help.

SONG AND MONOLOGUE SELECTION
I know how difficult it is to find exciting and age-appropriate audition material.
I'll create a list of age-appropriate songs and monologues, unique to your voice, type, and interests.
Now that you've found you some amazing material, let's work on it! We'll use Zoom to coach your pieces until they shine.
I'm happy to work on songs, contemporary monologues, classical monologues, or some of each.
