I am a trained character performer who studied at a wide variety of performance schools. These include The Second City, SF Comedy College, Upright Citizens Brigade, and Killing My Lobster. I was the youngest student to ever reach the advanced course at The Groundlings School of Sketch Comedy. After studying character comedy I began producing videos. This led to garnering over 750,000 followers on Vine, and over 6 million views on Youtube for my variety of one-of-a-kind characters.

I also have extensive work in television, stage, and immersive theatre. I directed, wrote, and starred in a series called Un Amor along with decorated actors such as Sean Astin, Seth Green, Tara Strong, E.G. Daily, Nyambi Nyambi, and Greg Cipes. I conceived a comedy troupe alongside actor Finn Wolfhard from Netflix’s Stranger Things and It, producing an audio sketch comedy album. I specialize in bringing out the best in each and every person who has a dream of performing.

I believe there is talent ...

Joe is a fantastic teacher. I felt instantly comfortable and open when we started working on my character studies. When he started breaking down the nuances and methods to get into character, I honestly felt like I unlocked something special, like a secret acting vault. I left feeling like my acting abilities were taken to the next level. His classes are super personalized and he helped me find my strengths and what makes me unique as a performer. I would totally recommend Joe!

Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

Having spent a lifetime on the stage in many roles, many capacities, I have accumulated a vast amount of knowledge pertaining to all facets of performing; be it theater, television, film. While not subscribing to one particular "method", I stress "reacting, not acting", and believability of performance. All ages and experience levels have benefited from my approach. Whether a student is an aspiring actor, or a working actor sharpening their skills or prepping for an audition, I provide a solid foundation and practical, applicable knowledge and guidance.

About Glenn

Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the ho

I have gone to many different coaches but never really hit it off with them but david made it super easy. I mean the man has won a damn emmy! He let me take some pictures with it. I now walk into casting rooms more confedent and for the very first time ended up testing for not one but two different pilots that he has coached me on. Can not recommend this man enough!"
