workshops and Coaching

I've worked with thousands of actors, helping them book roles, make career choices, and secure representation. I can quickly and accurately identify their Special Sauce — their "It Factor", that thing about them that pops and makes us lean in and listen. It's my superpower.

I offer one-on-one coaching for actors and have several group workshops offered throughout the year. I love being a catalyst for change in people’s lives by helping them cast themselves/their team/their life.

As our industry has shifted to self-tape auditions, actors often miss out on the opportunity to ask questions and receive adjustments in the room. They want their tape to stand out amongst the hundreds, but they feel like they're operating in a vacuum with no feedback, direction, or “in-the-room” energy. 

Having cast film, television, theater, and commercials for 25 years, I am able to quickly and accurately identify an actor's "Special Sauce" — that thing that makes us want to watch them on our stages and screens. I empower actors to bring those unique, specific qualities to the characters they play – bringing their voice to the role in a way that is exciting, surprising, and ultimately often leads to them booking the job.​ 

I love digging into the stories each individual was meant to tell, as well as the roles they were meant to play on an archetypal level… where their wheelhouse meets their wishlist.


I​n self-tape coaching sessions for actors, I will:​

  • Provide the opportunity for actors to tape their auditions during the session with real-time, virtual coaching

  • Provide expert script analysis, sharing tools that allow actors to prepare for future auditions with an insider's perspective and approach

  • Analyze a breakdown as only someone who has written thousands of breakdowns can, sharing clues that make a significant difference in a performance

  • Provide research and insight to identify patterns in the work of the writers/directors/showrunners that can inform the direction or tone of the scene

  • Use archetypes and archetypal stories to answer questions, provide clues, and give background when none is written in the script

  • Marry the music of the language with an actor's authentic voice and the character's objective

  • Serve as a reader, giving actors a generous, receptive scene partner (not their roommate who works in finance) 



My favorite part of casting is working with actors. I love being a catalyst for change in their lives, serving as a sounding board/accountability partner/ass-kicker/solutions-driven creative, and helping them to develop strategies to bring their vision to fruition.

Using my industry insight from the other side of the table, I can help actors to build relationships through understanding the needs and pain points of agents, managers, casting directors, and creatives. I love empowering actors, reminding them that their trajectory is limitless. I help build communities, identifying and connecting artists who can collaborate to further their careers.

In Strategy and Special Sauce coaching sessions, I will:

  • Identify an actor's Special Sauce — their "It Factor"

  • Ensure that actors' casting profiles and marketing materials are a strong, compelling, accurate representation of who they are

  • Do an in-depth analysis of the relationships actors have built over the course of their careers, figuring out how to enhance and capitalize on them

  • Identify the gaps/who actors need to know to achieve the next steps in their careers, and how to build these relationships

  • Analyze the material that actors bring in for workshops and auditions

  • Do market analysis based on actors' current location(s), formulating a strategy for each market, especially those in which they're a local hire

  • Support graduating actors as they establish themselves

  • Help actors handle the nuances of changing representation
