Welcome to my website. Dig in and find what I have to share with you and what things are a match for your needs. Let’s do this…
Whether through my CLASSES and COACHING or my many OTHER ENDEAVORS, I have a years-long track record of creation, innovation, making things happen, pulling rabbits out of hats (not magically, of course, but figuratively), and generally facilitating and helping people and situations achieve maximum potential.
If you have a “lost cause” I may very well be able to help you find new wind for it. OVER TIME I’VE LEARNED, sometimes begrudgingly, that I naturally HAVE A KNACK FOR SEEING WHAT IS, VS. WHAT IS PURPORTED, FINDING THE TRUTH AT IT’S CORE, AND BRINGING IT OUT.
Are you looking for acting workshops? New to the business, or experienced but frustrated? You’ve come to the right place. If you’re looking for my business endeavors, what I do — sales, production management, business development, consulting, casting, wine sales and education, photography, etc., have a look at the Other Business menu.
