About Gary

IMG_6987First things first.  I have a 100% success rate.

By that, I mean that every actor I have worked with has booked a job within six months of coming to me. Why this level of success? I believe that it is because of the unique blend of talents I bring to the coaching experience. As an actor, I know how to guide you toward where you need to go. But, that’s not useful unless you know exactly where you’re going — where the words on the page lead you.  As a writer, I know how to lift off of the page and lead you to where you’re supposed to be — a realization of what the writer set down, what the director wants and needs, and what the producers and suits know the audience will want to watch.


My feature film (co-written with Gwyn Lurie), THE MUSIC NEVER STOPPED, opened the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.  And my half hour pilot, Uncle Inappropriate, is in development at USA.


MY TRAINING. After receiving a B.A. in English & American Literature from Brown University, I studied acting at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, National Theater Institute. After that, I received my MFA in acting from UCLA. I’ve also studied at the British American Drama Academy. My coaching technique is practical guidance to extraordinary results. I pull from  many different disciplines and techniques to get you to where you need to go.
