Book your next gig with expert UCLA MFA Acting,Teacher of the Year Coach with 15+ years experience.
If you are an artist then you have no choice but to create. There are so many performers out there that simply want instant fame and treat the craft of acting as a sprint race. To them it is all about the hustle to the next big gig or higher numbers on their social media platforms... and money. There is nothing wrong with those things however, when the student finally sees acting as a craft and a life long marathon that should last until they are well into their 90's and that they truly do have time... That realization is the joy that fulfills me. You act because you have to. Gigs, unions, representation will all come to those that continue to grow in this craft and are constantly creating. The greatest gift I can give as a teacher is to share all that I have worked hard for. I work hard to financially sustain myself as an actor and not need another job. My students that I select reap from this benefit. Solid and proven expertise in the teaching of acting for all performance mediums. Jacob brings a rare and personal connection into the craft and industry. With an M.F.A in Acting from UCLA School of Theatre, Film and Television, A Teaching Certificate in Theatre for K-12 with over 13 years of teaching experience as a public school teacher and as a college professor. Jacob has taught over 1700 students personally and has facilitated many acting showcases for students to go on to be represented in the top five agencies on Broadway in New York.
