I’m interested in crafting honest, authentic storytelling, and helping artists build and maintain a sustainable creative practice. I like to work holistically with actors, always starting with their own initial thoughts and ideas about a character. During full length coaching sessions, I work with an actor’s personal preferences in terms of their own training and experience. Then through tailored feedback and creative exercises, we work together, from the foundations up, to craft a fully rounded piece. However, if you’re short on time and are just looking for a few final notes before an audition or a performance, I’m also happy to provide quick, easily actionable feedback to help you go that extra mile!
A detailed pricing breakdown can be found at the bottom of this page, but please read on for a few more details about my background and experience.
I grew up, trained, and studied in England, first at the Oxford School of Drama for a Foundation in Acting, and then Performing Arts at Bath Spa University where I specialised in Directing. I then moved to New York in 2014 to direct for both theatre and film. Some of the New York companies and institutions that I have had the pleasure of working with include Colt Coeur, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Stella Adler, Ensemble Studio Theatre, and The Dead Playwrights Society. I have over fifteen years of experience working with adults and young people including scene study classes, specific skills-based workshops such as movement and voice, and also one on one coaching for actors.
