Performing Arts

Do any of these statements sound familiar to you?

“I get a lot of auditions; I just can’t seem to book anything."

“I can’t get anyone to see my work (read my play)”

“I haven’t had fun creating in a long time”

“Nobody is casting me anymore and I don’t know what to do next!”

If you are just starting out in your career and need guidance on how to proceed or have been on a creative path for a long time and are looking for other paths to walk, Life Coaching with an emphasis on The Arts Professional is for you!
 
Besides being a Life Coach, I am a professional acting/directing coach and dramaturge with over 30 years experience. I have taught at The American Conservatory Theatre, The Drama Studio of London, Berkeley, USC, CalArts, The Actor’s Lab and am currently on faculty at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. I have produced, directed and dramaturged over 25 world premiere plays and yearly serve as a reader for The Nicholl Fellowship Screenwriting Competition.
