The Academy Program
Professional Actor - Successful Life Coach - Entrepreneur
It's great to have all of you here. Don't worry, I'll keep this short and sweet, I won't keep you here for 20 hours to just read my bio. If you're here, most of you have probably already heard something about me or gained some sort of knowledge as to who I am.
I come from a place of wanting to teach simply. Yes, I can be like everyone else and complicate the world out of acting for you, if you'd like, but my approach, is to take the practical road. In the beginning, I was one of the worst actors you could have ever of met. I was always over acting, showing everything and truly not having fun. A big influence on this, was the initial training I had obtained from poorly qualified instructors. I was being put forth on a path of acting that would have inevitably ended with me giving up on the craft (if I can even call it that). So I did what I had to do, I sought out the best mentors in the world. I wanted to learn their tricks, understand their approach, and find out how they were doing so darn well.
Some people think it's bragging, but I think you should be proud of the accomplishments you've made, because it wasn't easy for me to get here today, but I did and I did it with the sweat on my own back, so I'm proud when I say that my new found mentors had come from the BESTdrama schools in the WORLD. They've come from Juilliard, Harvard, Yale, RADA, A.C.T, and even some who never went to drama school. So I made it my goal to find out what it was that they all had and that I was missing. How were they so good? I wondered, were they using absolutely every little thing they were taught during their training at drama school and truth be told, they weren't. They only used the bare essentials of what was needed. It's from my rigorous and advanced training that I was finally able to learn what those things were. It wasn't an easy process by no means and there had to be some argumentation along the way, to find out what those essentials were, but years later I was able to obtain it and now here I am today. I come from an approach of making acting very easy instead of deathly complicated and only using the bare essentials of what you REALLY need.
I promised you in the beginning that I wouldn't make this bio to long, but I think it's better when people understand exactly where you're coming from. I'll tell it to you straight. Acting, from the business side of it, is one of the hardest things to break into, because it takes an extremely large amount of luck, but it also takes being prepared for luck and not throwing away opportunities when they fall in your lap. The beautiful thing about this life, is that you have the ability to make your own choices and choose to use what will work best for you. If you want my courses than get mine, if you want someone else's course than choose theirs. You have a choice, so make it, just don't sit around waiting for it to come to you, because it won't... Trust me.
I wish you all the best and hope to see you one day.
All the best
