  1. What’s an adjective that best describes an Actor you want to work with?

  2. What scared you about Auditioning for top drama schools?

These are artists who graduated with B.F.A. from places like Yale, Rutgers, Juilliard, and more.


They know what it is to audition and get accepted at the top drama schools.


Not only that, they have plenty of real-world experience and around what a great artist DOES.

What scared you about College auditions?

Terrified I wouldn’t be a good fit for the school, that my work was only good to me

What is an Artist?


An artist holds the mirror up to reality.  


We reflect what the world authentically presents.


An Artist is someone who creates!!!


An Artist is a member of Society born to reflect and also entertain that Society. Serve as Society’s mirror and its relief from itself.
