" ... I feel very lucky to have had the chance to grow under the guidance of James. His coaching helped me stand in my power, take the tools, and learn how to use them to give strong, memorable performances. He is passionate about the craft of story telling and the feeling is very contagious. He genuinely cares for the growth of his students, not only as an actor, but as a person. He encourages us to be a community of people who help and cheer for each other. James made me realize the secret to becoming a great actor is focusing on the power of standing up for the many stories that are being and in need of being told.

It changed my perspective of approaching my craft and significantly transformed my work..."

"...Coaching & classes with James, it’s like “life” challenging, fun, adventurous, & extremely rewarding.  He reminds you that living in the present is where the “prize is,” and his ability to break down scripts and moments and giving me the ability to do it myself,
that’s the prize and I’ve won, big time..."

"You're more than a teacher James, you inspire and motivate as you teach. Actors really need that, especially in LA when most of us are going for big dreams while distant from our friends and family - the people who usually help to keep us on track!   "
