Master those acting skills from a teacher with nearly 20 years of experience in theater and film
With nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, I will teach you everything you need to know on how to become a competitive and successful working actor. Each lesson is tailored to your specific goal. We will go over character development, scene breakdown, vocal technique, audition prep, creating reels and self tapes etc. Acting is about having fun and putting your whole heart into the work, which is what we will do.
About Marquis E.

I started acting at the age of 10 participating in school plays. From there, I went on to community theater. Performing for me was an escape. A chance to live another life even if only for a brief moment. My childhood and teen years consisted of performing in a number of traveling shows, festivals and on broadway stages. While attending college, I studied a plethora of acting techniques including Meisner, Stella Adler, and Stanislavski. I utilized these methods as I made my way into film and television. I’ve been fortunate enough to work on some major film (Black Panther 2, Say Less, Behind Church Doors) and television (Power, Gossip Girl, Servant, Swagger) productions. Alongside acting, I share a passion for script writing and directing as well. Unlike most acting coaches, I am still actively working in the field. I know that feeling of getting into the audition room psyching myself out over not feeling prepared enough. I've spent hours upon hours breaking down scenes and developing an emotional connection with my character. I know that desire of wanting to "get it right". I am right there with you in every sense. Being an actor is just like being an athlete. You need to be training consistently to be at your best 100% of the time. Our lessons will focus on what you as the actor wish to accomplish. This isn’t going to be you reading from a script for an hour and me telling you how well you did. We are going to work together to create a believable performance. You will be getting direct feedback and helpful critique that will push you to make stronger acting choices. We will come up with game plans for your future while working on your craft. We will work on Audition Prep, Scene Breakdown, Demo Reels, Self Tapes, Character Development, Emotional Prep, Headshots, Landing an Agent etc. If you want to get serious about acting and train with someone who’s been in the game for nearly 20 years, get in touch with me and let’s get you working. I can’t wait to see where these lessons take you!

Best teacher ever. I love to act but don’t have the confidence to perform in front of a lot of people. Marquis really pushed me to get out of my comfort zone and make bold Acting choices. I’ve never worked so hard in my life lol but I’m so grateful for the experience. Will keep working at it.

I wanted to get into film acting after doing a lot of theater. I’m learning so much about how different the two are from each other. Definitely will continue lessons

I’m new to acting and was looking for a teacher to help me get started. Marquis is so friendly and fun to work with. He has a lot of information about techniques, acting exercises, websites for scripts and monologues etc. I’ve learned so much and feel like I’ve come so far within the few weeks that I’ve worked with Marquis. He is so patient and thorough with me. I am absolutely going to continue lessons with him. If you’re looking to get into acting or even just get better, I would 100% recommend Marquis! Thank you so much for building my confidence!!
