Instructor Biography

I have been acting and modeling since 2012. I have talent agents in Los Angeles and San Francisco. My acting credits have ranged from national ads to music videos to catalog shoots to television.

I have learned so much about how to get an agent, how to prepare for auditions, how to behave in the casting room, and how to act on set. 

As a teen myself, I know just what concerns tweens and teens have about breaking into acting and I've worked hard to put courses together that will prepare you for any situation.
