6/4/22-UPDATE: I am no longer living in NYC, but I'm happy to recommend other wonderful coaches still in the area if you need help finding someone. Thanks to all who have reached out, keep on improv'ing!
Hey there! I am a writer and performer in New York City, and I would love to coach your indie team or practice group.

I've been a student at the Upright Citizen Brigade Theater since 2014, and I've had the privilege of working extensively with many talented and wonderful coaches, including Sean Casey, Sebastian Conelli, Nicole Drespel, Hunter Nelson, Tim Martin, David Bluvband, Keisha Zollar, and more.

I've also organized a Pattern Game Harold practice group since 2017 and would be happy to help you crack this sometimes stupid and infuriating opener!

I'm excited to assist with whatever your group is working on right now - whether that's organic or premise-based scene-work, drilling that base reality, framing game, finding strong justifications, developing group mind, or simply getting out of your head and following the fun.

You can catch me at my monthly character showcase "Power of Two" with my co-host Conner Ozer at Muchmore's on the first Wednesday of every month. You can also intermittently see me performing around the city with my two teams, Miracle Horse and Humble Gods.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
