Hey there, hero!

I'm a huge fan of helping people out, but damn, some people make it next to impossible.

Hey there, hero!

Meaning I've received them when auditioning or being taught, and I've given them when coaching talent.

But when I received an email from one of my brand spanki...

I'm debuting a new class this Saturday. It's free, and I'm almost finished with it.

Hey there, hero!

We face daily challenges to the sense of order and control that we crave.

This goes for our work as performers, as well as social, political and emotional interactions. We're faced with things we don't understand, can't control and can't fix.

And it can be maddening, and make us lash out, or have others lash out at us.

(Just google "anti-mask" and click on the video results.)

I have three tools I...

Hey there, hero!

I didn't see this coming, but I happened to have been fortunate enough to be one of the first actors back to work on a network TV show after production resumed a few weeks ago.

Hey there, hero!

But for some people, that notion of unpredictability applies t...
