"Paul has given me insight into the entertainment business that is necessary in order to move my career to the next level.  His guidance is invaluable......and if your smart, you will take his advice and run with it.  After YEARS in the business and taking advice from 'Everyone' who thinks, they know something about how to get yourself out there, I turned to Paul, and discovered that 'Everyone' didn't know what they were talking about.  Paul is out there in the industry.  He knows!! I hang on his every word and am so grateful for his training and his guidance, it has been priceless!"

I have learned more from him about how to actually book a job than anyone I have studied with. Do yourself a favor! Take his classes or private training. You will walk away a better actor on so many levels."

JOSHUA RICHARDS
Actor
Los Angeles, CA


"My modeling agent in San Francisco referred me to an acting manager who scammed me out of all the money I moved to LA with. I totally lost faith in myself, and everyone industry related. Then I met Paul and started doing private coaching. He taught me how to stand out from the crowd, the proper way to market myself, and after only a few months he referred me to one of the most respected agencies in Hollywood and they picked me up! During pilot season- WITHOUT my SAG card, and without TV or Film credits!

Paul is THE, absolute best! He has first hand knowledge inside the industry. He's not only my Acting Coach, but my Motivator, Career Advisor, Guidance Counselor, and sometimes...Therapist! If it weren't for Paul, I'd be just another Bartender."

I just wanted to say thanks, and thank you 
very much for everything you've helped me with.  If it hadn't been for the things that I've learned from you, and the things you have done, I wouldn't be represented by who I am, and I certainly wouldn't have a demo reel. I haven' t even been here two years yet, and I'm extremely happy with the way things are moving for me, and I owe a lot of it to you.

Thanks,

"I came out to LA hoping to catch my 'break' immediately. Little did I know that catching my 'break' meant finding Paul!! His teaching and career guidance have taken me to unimaginable levels in my acting after only a year! I've been booking jobs almost monthly, and auditioning weekly...and I owe it ALL to Paul. From helping you market yourself, to scene study, audition technique, cold reading and more, Paul gives you the tools to be the complete package in acting. Bottom line is, listen to Paul and you WILL get jobs."
