Actor with vast experience working with Tony-Award Winning theater companies proudly presents Theater Masterclasses in Phnom Penh!

Methodology

I am proud to offer professional teaching methodologies that have been used in some of the best acting schools in the world, taken straight from the masters of the craft - Konstantin Stanislavski, Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sandford Meisner, and Viola Spolin, among others. Depending on the student's acting level, we can either start with the basics of theater, or immediately jump into advanced acting theory. Scene work, monologue work, and play analysis, as well as character development in all aspects of mind, emotion, and body are only a taste of what we will cover during our sessions together.

Background

I am an actor, director, novelist, and teacher of the theatrical arts, who has lived, worked and practiced my craft on three continents. From working in tandem with the Tony-Award Winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, to winning Best Action Film accolades at film festivals in Europe, to even working with grassroots theater companies in Southeast Asia, my personal journey of the arts has certainly been dramatic to say the least! Now currently based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I am looking forward to working with and instructing bright, bold, and brave new actors, who wish to inspire the world around them at large.
