John is a really special teacher for a lot of reasons. For one, he truly loves the work. He’s crazy about it. That’s not really easy to find. Two, he genuinely loves actors and wants to see you be your unique best as an artist and a person. And then third, he’s got a very sharp eye, not just for genuine, truthful moments but also for the current state and trends of the medium and the industry. I can honestly say starting at JRS was a milestone moment in my career in terms of understanding how to bring myself to the marketplace and show the buyers what I could give to the story they were trying to tell. And then finally… he’s such a love-able weirdo! I mean really – go meet him real quick and tell me I’m wrong. I’ll wait.
