Teaching Style: I strongly encourage emotional honesty and real character motivation in my students, regardless of the structure we're working on. I believe that improv is a conduit for strong characters feeling strong feelings, so I direct a lot of my feedback towards that end. My hope is that my students come out of any class I teach more comfortable with expressing themselves and their characters in a very real way.
