Our Instrument. It is our everything.
For it is the very essence of you. Without it we can not be nor become the actor in which we dream of becoming, the one that has that amazing and oh so dazzling career.

Sometimes when you set out to do something, that feeling of awe can still come over you when you […]

Yep, that’s right.
Stop prolonging success. Depending on where you are at on your acting journey – success for you may be just around the corner, just around a turn or two, or after many miles, twists, and turns of being in the driver’s seat.
Oh yes, YOU are in the driver seat more than you may realize. This is a good thing – that it’s NOT solely up to our representation, casting directors, directors, or producers for our careers to unfold the way we are hoping and wanting them to.
