Private Acting Teacher

As an actress of 19 years, I love teaching my students the art of telling a story. I started my training in the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts program, following on to Interlochen Arts Academy and eventually private training in Los Angeles. I have credits in regional theater, television (Netflix's Dear White People, The CW's Worst Birthday Ever, TruTV's Adam Ruins Everything), countless national commercials, and more. Together, we will explore several different methods including Meisner, Stanislavsky, Boleslavsky, imagining, and more, to create your own unique method. I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, we'll assess your goals, learn how to break down a script, and choose an acting method to start with. As we go on, we will build a repetoire of monologues and scenes for you to use, develop career trajectory targets, and develop your own personal approach to the art of storytelling. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

I have only had one lesson with her but she is amazing. She has already gotten me exploring and learning new things that I haven’t even learned while trying to obtain my degree. Ellysa has a lot of insight about the industry that I appreciate and I am very excited to continue working on my artistry with her.

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!

It is an acting technique that allows the actor to associate with the character on an emotional level.

Essentially, the actor “becomes” the character. …
