I recently passed a college course in Public Speaking with an 'A' grade. I also just received my BFA in acting, where I was trained intensely in how to be comfortable in front of large and small groups of people, how to alter material for the physical size of an audience, how to bring one's individual personality to any text, and how to create original material that other people can relate to without hitting them over the head with it. The degree program also made me very good at memorization and impromptu delivery. I would love to pass these skills on to others.
For the past four years, I have been working extensively with non-native English speakers, helping them recognize speech patterns that are incongruent with the contemporary American accent, and teaching them how to create sentences that flow naturally according to the native speech patterns. During this time, I was also receiving my own training in acting and voice. Enrolling in three classes of Kristin Linklater speech techniques and shadowing a certified Linklater teacher, I have embodied the practices of natural breathing patterns, vocal vibrations, tension relief, and articulation. I have also recently taken a college course in Public Speaking.
I have spent the past four years getting my BFA in Acting from Oklahoma City University, graduating with highest honors this past May. My coursework included classes in Shakespeare, Chekhov, Greek, contemporary theatre, on-camera acting, auditioning, and directing. I have also acted in, directed, and choreographed many plays and musicals.
