“Michael, thank you for your unfailing encouragement, professionalism and patience. You are a master at challenging without intimidating, and respecting an actor’s process while maintaining honesty and realism. Coming from a decidedly non-acting background in academics and music, I really appreciated your focus on character analysis and intuitive approach to performance. Within two weeks of completing our workshops this complete novice had already auditioned for a national commercial, booked her first paying role in an industrial and was featured in a music video slated for national release. I’m so happy to know that any future acting successes I may have started in the hands of such a wonderful teacher!

All the best,”
