Jeff taught me how to ask the right questions when approaching the work; he teaches not only what to do, but how to do it. Whether you want to act in film, television, theatre (including Shakespeare), or even voice work, Jeff is a fantastic resource. Jeff is a kind and genuine human being who will keep your best interests at heart. He wants to push you to your full potential as an actor. Will you become vulnerable? Yes. Will you become authentic? Definitely. Both elements are required for true, real, believable acting, and Jeff will bring them out in you.” – Caleb Kneip

Jeff’s knowledge and wealth of experience is enlightening and the process gets results! I will feel so much more confident with my choices at my next audition knowing I have ‘done my homework’. I look forward to learning as much as I can from Jeff.” – Jodi Haigh


Scott Puckett“At the tender age of 59, I finally said to myself….you’re an actor. Signed up for a class with Jeff with no real ideas of what to expect. And oh….I had no idea of the treasure I would find. Yes, my passion has been opened! Yes my soul can never again be contained….for it now soars! I’ve been under Jeff’s tutelage for approx 9 months, meeting once a week. I am continuously amazed by Jeff’s level of knowledge and mastery of his craft. And something totally unexpected….. The sense of comradery…all of my fellow acting students so support one another, from day one; we have become a family. Thank you, my friend.” – Scott Puckett

Highly recommended!” – Joe Mcilhargey
