In addition I now coach acting and teach Acting Technique, Scene Study and Cold Reading classes at the BackStage Award nominated Keep It Real Acting Studio in Burbank.

I have been trained (USC Theater School (BA), Stella Adler LA, The Moscow Art Theatre and NIU School of Theatre and Dance (MFA)) in the acting, movement, and vocal techniques of Stella Adler, Sanford Meisner, Catherine Fitzmaurice, Michael Chekhov, Lloyd Williamson, and Stanislavsky. I am confident in my ability to bring a character to life and to "live truthfully under imaginary circumstances." -Stanislavsky... Also, I love family, friends, great music, hiking, fresh air, skiing (both water and snow), poker and a good single malt scotch.
