Additional Areas of focus & training
I incorporate many training techniques into my work as an actor, teacher and director. Primarily I use the Viewpoints, psychophysical acting,extended vocal sounds and deep listening. I am interested in working without knowing the outcome and the seemingly simple task of willingness to allow oneself to be truly seen.
