“I have always been passionate about actor education and getting rid of gatekeepers that prevent artists from having access to it. My childhood was split between time in Dublin and time in rural Illinois. In neither place did I feel like I had proper access to the information I needed to launch my acting career. There was no one in my circle who could guide me in this path. Now as an adult with an acting education worth, quite literally, hundred of thousands of dollars, I am determined to create resources and training programs that are accessible to actors anywhere in the world. I want to be an aid to anyone who has the same hunger for acting that I have. The entertainment industry is full of gatekeepers and I want to hand out the keys.”
