"The minute you get away from fundamentals-- whether it's proper technique, work ethic, or mental preparation-- the bottom can fall out of your game, your schoolwork, your job, whatever you're doing." -Michael Jordan

Encore! Artistic Director / Managing Director
"I also love teaching acting classes with Encore! because it's a different experience than directing a show. In a play, my objective is the overall production. I give individual notes to each actor, and I'm there to support you and answer questions as you develop your character. But my focus is making sure the entire cast (which could be 20, 30, or 40+ actors) comes together as a whole. In a class, I have a small group of 6-8 students, and I am completely focused on teaching YOU, helping YOU, and building YOU up. It's also a great way to show me a different side of you that I haven't seen in rehearsals, and open you up for more roles at future auditions. If I've never worked with you before, acting class is a great opportunity to show me not only your acting skills, but your work ethic, passion, communication skills, and attitude, all of which I take into consideration when casting a show."
