"Shannon has a true gift for coaching. She finds a way to get you out of your head and to make confident choices in your material. I’ve worked with Shannon on dialects, self tape auditions and theatre auditions. Every coaching session I’ve had with Shannon has been a collaboration that has left me feeling confident and prepared.

After spending six years in conservatory training programs (MFA Yale School of Drama & BFA UC Santa Barbara) and over a decade practicing my craft and continuing training within the business of acting, I love nothing more than sharing that wisdom with other artists. I have a passion for guiding and inspiring actors, helping them reach new depths within their own understanding of a character or scene. Combining my extensive training in the theatre with my detailed knowledge of the complexities of film and television, I am practiced in fine tuning actors' auditions both on stage and in front of the camera. I specialize in voice and speech and have worked with actors and non-actors with dialect management and learning new accents and dialects!
Currently on faculty at Pace University, Acting for Film, Television, Voiceovers & Commercials, I have worked at Circle in the Square Theatre School and Creative House, Manhattan School of Music, Rider University, The Tank, and The Glass Eye Theatre Company.
