I’m an actor & audition guru who will help you slay your theatre program auditions

  • Carnegie Mellon School of Drama BFA Acting degree
  • Interlochen Arts Academy graduate *world-renowned arts high school

I got into my dream school with the help of incredible audition coaches, so I have a passion for being that supportive spark for others. And, as a working actor who is currently auditioning in the industry right now, I know exactly what you’re going through.

I specialize in Shakespeare, monologue selection & preparation, physical ensemble theatre, voiceover, directing plays with a touch of farce & fantasy, teaching acting technique—especially advanced movement vocabularies—and devising new works based in avant-garde choreographic theatre.
