I approach each acting lesson with the method appropriate for the actor's experience, ability, type, age and other applicable attributes. I also take into consideration the medium preference of the performer: theatre, musical theatre, film, television, improvisation, standup, etc. I treat each student as a unique and individual artist, deserving of respect and dignity.

I met Christopher at AMDA College of the Performing Arts in L.A. where he was an excellent student. He was always prepared, creative, enthusiastic and collaborative. He also has terrific leadership skills. I recommend Christopher because he has what it takes to be a great teacher.
Christopher is an intelligent artist. I know him from my time at The American Musical and Dramatic Academy College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts. There we study anything and everything we need to know about acting. I can say with good faith you are in good hands.
