"I love acting and I love actors. I've been fortunate enough to have a successful career in this industry since I was a child and on through adulthood. Ive accumulated invaluable experience working with luminaries in the film, television, and stage world over the decades and I'm ready to share what I've learned.

I've been doing this my whole life and I love it as much today as I ever did. It's still fun, it's still...magic"
