One-on-one Mentor Sessions currently available.
These sessions are tailor-made to find solutions for issues that you’re facing as a professional actor.
In one-on-one meetings we will see how you can best deal with agents, casting directors, auditions and fellow actors. We’ll sort problems in a step-by-step manner. If you feel ‘stuck’ but aren’t sure why, we can, through discussion, clarify your thinking on where and why you’re stuck. We will create techniques and strategies that you like and can use on a daily basis. This will assist you to keep raising your professional bar.

Definitions is the title of new written work I’m publishing along with Tips & Insights. These publications give expression in writing to what is done in my classes.
Definitions was proposed by Camille Stopps as she was thinking on some recent discussion we had in a Mentor session. It hit her that there are key ideas in our work manifested in certain words and that to look at the actual definition of those key words was important -- especially in this day of disinformation.
Following the definition will be a short note explaining how this idea comes up in our work.
All definitions will be taken from the Oxford English Dictionary.
Let’s begin our Definitions publications with the word definitions itself:
An exact statement or description of the nature, scope, or meaning of something.
‘our definition of what constitutes poetry’
