I rediscovered my confidence working with John. He creates an environment that is at once safe yet challenging, inspiring and fun. I greatly admire John’s simple and honest approach to teaching. He is supportive without mincing words. John respects actors. He cares about your work and finds joy in your successes. Some days, it is tough to feel like an actor. Leaving John’s class, that is never in question.

As a teacher, I feel no fear or intimidation from him. What I like most about his class is that I feel that John is in the trenches with me. Not some Lord of Acting sitting high above me with the secret or ‘right way’ to do things. He is able to use his experiences as an actor and more importantly as a human to relate to every individuals specific needs. Coming from a stage background I was intimidated by the camera. John has helped give me confidence in front of the camera on a intimate and technical level. And we are only just getting started.
