As a Teacher,
I help students develop their own capacity for expressive connection. I offer my range of training and experience as a tool kit to support each student's specific needs. Master Teacher Catherine Fitzmaurice says, "Teach what is in front of you". I approach each student as the source of their own inspiration. My job is to help to unlock that inspiration and provide practical tools for growth.
I teach scene study, acting technique, Shakespeare, voice, movement and speech at the New York Film Academy. At AMDA I teach in the Acting Department as well as in the Voice and Speech Department. I also sometimes teach Public Speaking at the City College of New York.
I teach LMT, privately, to professional actors in NYC.

You will learn to use the architecture of your body to exchange energy and weight. You will lift and be lifted! Discover the liberating experience of 'improvising' given text.
