To be an actor requires courage and curiosity to examine one's own life experience, creative potential and relationship to humanity.
It requires the ability to be passionate about inquiry and discovery.
It requires talent.
I cannot teach talent.
I serve as a guide and inspire courage by helping actors understand the benefit of deep self-knowledge and the value of a rich and vibrant imagination: the essential means to living truthfully in any circumstance.
My teachers were Sanford Meisner and Uta Hagen. These two giants in the American Theater launched me into a life as a teacher, director and actress in New York City and Regional Theaters across the country.
As master teachers they passed on to me a clear process designed to ignite those actors who are willing to meet face to face, heart to heart, the demands of their artistry and explore their greatest potential.
