You and I both know I’m writing this bio, so no third-person speak from me. I’ve been a working actor in LA for about fifteen years now, and I’ve also been a teacher/audition coach at JRS for the past five. All that really means in the long run is that I have a decent amount of experience both in the room as the auditioner, and on the couch coaching the auditioner. I love to figure out the puzzle that comes with auditioning. Whether it’s finding the right fit/temperature for the actor and the character he/she is going in for, or determining what makes you pop in the room.
I am very interested not only in the organic version of the character for you, but also taking into consideration what’s going to look great on camera. Since most auditions are being filmed now, we CANNOT ignore the camera in the room. At the end of the day, I want you to leave a class with me feeling more grounded, more connected to the words and confident to walk into your audition feeling free to play.
Patrick’s coaching rate is: Faculty.
I feel like I’m in great hands every time I coach with Patrick. He is very focused and present, and does a beautiful job of quickly pinpointing the purpose of the scene and matching it with your strengths.
The knowledge and heart that Patrick and Bethany bring to the studio every Tuesday for Audition Class is infectious and will remind you why you fell in love with acting in the first place. They remove the anxiety of an audition by getting you in the habit of auditioning. This class is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Patrick every week in my ongoing acting class, and he really makes everyone’s read pop. The notes he offers make your read unique to you, while still being the best choices for the camera.
Patrick is truly an incredible coach. Not only does he have the ability to find what works best in the context of the scene, he does it in a direct, articulate, and specific way.
