Patrick is passionate about storytelling, and I always leave a session armed with insight and the tools to deliver!”

— MJM, coaching client

When I have an audition and want a deeper understanding of the material, I work with Patrick. His broad knowledge of various acting techniques, and being a brilliant actor himself, help bring an unparalleled level of analysis to each script. Working with him, I’ve booked so many jobs - ranging from working at a renowned Shakespeare Company to Feature Films. His attention to detail and specificity is fabulous! ”

Teaching is a give and take, a speaking and listening, a sharing and receiving.  Teaching is an exchange, a conversation. It requires the agility to adjust the course of action that is planned in order to address the questions that arise in the learning process.  

My classroom is a space of facilitated conversation.

This conversational, reciprocal relationship in which knowledge is shared and utilized develops and is possible through simple trust:  trust that the teacher is honest, humane, passionate, and interested, not only in the subject, but more importantly in students learning something regarding.

I am passionate about performing and about teaching various modalities of it. 

My goal as a teacher of performance is to enable students to discover and claim their artistry.  By doing so, I seek to facilitate a student's subjective understanding and way of working as a performer, or in whatever field their life "practice" turns out to be.
