I help working actors on a spiritual path feel aligned and joyful on their journey towards a big career. I can give you cool ideas, innovative practices, and reliable support as you navigate toward more artistic depth and meaningful success.
I have been teaching and coaching for almost two decades. In my early twenties, I did a BFA in Acting from UC Santa Barbara, then spent a period of time on a personal and spiritual journey working for the likes of Tony Robbins and Ken Wilber.
Then, I did an MFA at the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco.
After graduation, I acted professionally in the Bay Area at places like ACT, The Magic Theatre, San Jose Rep, Aurora Theatre, Marin Theatre Company and others. During that same time, I started teaching at The Berkeley Rep School of Theatre and ACT, while doing PhD research at the California Institute of Integral Studies (funded by The Esalen Institute), in which I explored integrative and spiritual approaches to actor training.
Ten years ago, I moved to Los Angeles to continue to pursue work in theatre, film, and television. I have continued to teach at The American Conservatory Theatre, Berkeley Rep, and privately in Los Angeles, and I have developed an integrative approach to actor training: using mind, body, and spirit to work towards personal, artistic, and professional growth.
