New: Audition Coaching and Self Tapes
Awaken the force. Audition like a Jedi.
It takes 10,0000 hours to master something. Whether you are a seasoned pro or just getting into the auditioning game, having someone who you trust to help guide that process is an essential part of presenting your best work and booking the role.
My approach to auditioning is very much like training to become a Jedi. It’s about learning how to harness "your force.” Everyone’s path is different. There’s no “secret formula.” But the world of self-tapes offers an advantage: You have the power to submit your very best performance.
Recent booking from either myself or my people include the following:
New Amsterdam NBC
Godfather of Harlem Epix
The Equalizer CBS
Suspicion Apple TV+
As an actor, I’ve studied with and continue to train with the top on-camera coaches in NYC. My personal auditioning journey began with a small practice group of peers who met every week for 4.5 years to practice our auditioning technique. This lead to many of us booking roles.
Why work with me?
I’m a working actor and a director. I bring both of these lenses into my coaching. My short films have screened across the U.S. and internationally, won awards, and allowed me to do the next bigger project. But mostly importantly, they have taught me to take chances because that’s when the magic happens. Hint: Take risks.
No great artist in history became great by doing what they thought other people wanted them to.
For some time, I’ve seen a need for good, affordable audition and self-tape coaching. This is something I’ve already been doing for years for my close friends, so opening up my studio now seems like the natural progression. As an actor’s director, I’m here to play and guide you to discoveries. As a filmmaker, I love to find simple, interesting ways to shoot an audition that puts my actors in the scene and replicates what’s happening on the page. Let’s catch some greenlights!
