“I can’t give a compliment higher than calling someone the “real deal”. That’s exactly who John is. Not only is he knowledgeable about all aspects of the business, but he will get you ready for those big auditions. (You know, those auditions that you need to have up to competitive, producer standards.) He will give you the confidence to bring the real you to the work. And it doesn’t hurt that he laughs at all your lame jokes. 5/5 stars”

Mike Roche

“John is THE teacher for working actors. By taking his class not only did I see an uptick in callbacks and bookings, but through his teaching I also developed a clearer understanding of who I am as an actor. His insight, knowledge, and general care for his students makes his class absolutely invaluable.”

Madison Spear
