Thank you for your interest in my coaching services. Please note that I exclusively teach online.

As a coach, I specialize in helping performers, actors, singers, dancers, speakers, and writers find their ultimate creative expression. With over two decades of experience teaching at universities, colleges, and conservatories across the US and abroad, I have developed a vast array of techniques and exercises to help any student unlock their creative potential. My foundation in the Stanislavski system is supplemented by years of studying martial arts, yoga, Suzuki, Lecoq, modern, jazz, African dance, and voice.

I view acting as a spiritual skill that everyone is born with, and my goal is to help my students experience the joy, discipline, and discovery that comes with unlocking their unique talents. Through acting, I aim to facilitate personal growth and transformation, all while preparing students for the challenges and opportunities of the industry.

I am also a licensed Spiritual Practitioner, offering additional support to those seeking greater creative insight, purpose, clarity, and freedom. Whether my students go on to successful careers or start their own arts organizations, there is nothing more rewarding than witnessing someone become empowered through the acting process.

I invite you to take advantage of my discounted online mini lesson or conference to experience firsthand why I am the right coach for you.

Kenshaka is my acting coach who, in our 30-minute intro meeting, managed to bring real tears to my eyes. His "ACTOR'S RESOURCE" guide helped me grasp the concept of the history and theory of acting, as well as how to comprehend the character I'll be portraying. Apart from the guide, I also paid him to keep rehearsing my lines with me, and he even got me ready for my "CALL TIME"! Thanks to Kenshaka, I can say that he brings out my authenticity, which is fundamental to draw the audience to my character and not my acting skills.

Kenshaka is an exceptional acting mentor. Any performer would be fortunate to receive his priceless direction. His guidance transcends mere acting techniques. He encourages self-reflection to enhance proficiency and presents insightful inquiries that dramatically enrich a one-hour session. I cannot emphasize enough how much I endorse him, and I eagerly anticipate our continued mentorship. Every week, I eagerly await our next lesson.

My outlook on acting has been completely transformed by my collaboration with Mr. Ali. I wholeheartedly appreciate our instructional sessions, as they provide me with tremendous enlightenment. Even if we have a break between lessons and resume a month later, we always pick up right where we left off, and I feel just as enriched as before. Mr. Ali is a consummate professional and an invaluable instructor who has already imparted a wealth of knowledge about both my skills and my personal growth. I am eager to continue our work together! :)
