"I have been a professional, working actor for over twenty years (you
can check me out on IMDB) and have been coaching actors, one-one-one
and in classes/workshops, in both Power Audition Technique Honing
(PATH) and Practical Goal Setting Technique (PGST) for over a decade. My clients range from those just entering the biz, to celebrities, leads
of hit TV shows and Emmy winners. It has been a profound joy
witnessing my clients and students, through using my techniques, go on
to become Series Regulars, book roles in major films, and have not
only their audition process and careers transformed, but their entire
approach to creativity itself.
How was PATH and PGST born? In 2002, I hit bottom with addiction to drugs and alcohol. With the generous help of others who had overcome
compulsions similar to my own, I soon found a path toward physical
sobriety. The key to this path was an intrinsically linked combination
of Acceptance and Surrender, i.e. – discovering what is in my power
and what is not in my power. The key itself had been forged in the
fires of my own suffering, or, to put it more precisely, forged in a
new understanding and new relationship with that suffering.
Eventually, I felt called to re-address my career and skills as a
professional actor with this deeper yet fledgling experiential
understanding on the nature of power. I began to ask myself – 'What am
I truly pursuing? – Do I even know? What are the skills necessary to
building an artistic career of substance? Do I possess these
skills, and if not how might I acquire them? How does my calling to be
a professional actor relate to the larger principles of my life?'
Engaging with questions such as these were the seeds of PATH."
