Kevin is great work to with! I asked him to direct me in a self tape audition I had for a TV Pilot for a network series. He not only helped me analyze the scene, but we worked it several different ways going over objectives, actions and circumstances of the scene. He really helped me get to the the essence of the character and really worked with me to showcase my unique abilities. I definitely recommend Kevin if you're looking for an acting coach or someone to help you with auditions or a self tape. Kevin also actually helped me film the self tape and knew what angles would showcase my particular look and range. He also gave me advice as to how to send the self tape and what to pay attention to as per casting director requests. Give him a call. He is a great acting teacher/director and fun to work with.

Kevin is a great guy and a great teacher. I was looking for some one-on-one acting classes because I was interested, and I found Kevin's coaching. He gave me a monologue to memorize, and we spent several weeks analyzing it. he gave me a multitude of strategies on how to "become the character." He is truly a terrific teacher and I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for somewhere to get started. Even if you aren't getting started - he is a great mentor to further develop your skills as an actor.
