Susan's Keys to Success

CRAFT: Together we will discover your acting skills and talents and find out what techniques work best for you. I will also help you develop your instincts so that you can define your authentic voice as an actor. I trained in many disciplines, from Method to cutting-edge Hollywood techniques.

LIFE: To survive as an actor you need to know a lot about yourself and what you ultimately hope to achieve. We will work together to find ways to use your life experiences to enhance and build your acting career. And we will set goals to help you move forward to have the acting life you want.

BUSINESS: Entering the acting business can be daunting. But with guidance and support you can gain the skills, focus, and confidence to succeed as well as the savvy to deploy and protect your financial resources so that you don’t go broke in the process. I will help you save time and make smart financial decisions as you make your dreams come true.
