MEET OUR COACHES

WHAT IS COACHING?

Our Life and Career Coaches are dedicated to enabling and encouraging you to reach toward your success goals. Life Coaching is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling; life coaching wholeheartedly addresses your life, your creative pursuits, relationships (both professional and personal), and your overall well-being. Through group or one-on-one sessions, we examine what is going on right now, discover what your obstacles or challenges might be getting in the way, and choose a holistic course of action to create the life and career you desire.

WHAT CAN WE WORK ON?

You can use your session to work on whatever you want! Some common things our clients bring to us include: 

- Personal Branding advice

About BRIT

Some of my favorites:

Book  – To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 

Play – The Night Season by Rebecca Lenkiewicz Quote – “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” – Jack Kerouac

You can catch me on ABC, Nickelodeon, Lifetime Networks, smiling happily or sassily in national commercials; writing, performing, and directing in festival shorts, and funny or die exclusive videos.

 

Pro-Tip: The Boundaries are IMAGINARY.

ERIN RYE

About ERIN

Some of my favorites:

Book – God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

Play – Like...teleplay? Jane the Virgin. It's quietly the smartest show on TV

Quote – “When it is genuine, when it is born of the need to speak, no one can stop the human voice. When denied a mouth, it speaks with the hands or the eyes, or the pores, or anything at all. Because every single one of us has something to say to the others, something that deserves to be celebrated or forgiven by others.” -Eduardo Galeano, The Book of Embraces

 

Check me out on HBO's VEEP, Hulu's Dimension 404, as well as the original pilot of Lifetime's UnReal (BEFORE they moved to Canada).  

 

Pro-Tip: Everyone is focused on their own mistakes...they aren't paying attention to yours.

 

About BRIAN N.

Some of my favorites:

Book– Moneyball

Quote– "Perfect is the enemy of good"- Voltaire

Play– Macbeth

You can find me on MASTERS OF SEX and a regular role on Neil Labute’s television debut FULL CIRCLE on DirecTV. I've had the opportunity to has work with Jon Hamm, Eddie Murphy, Kristen Bell, Mark Harmon, Kathryn Morris, Tim Roth, and many more. As a coach, I focuses not on the result but the process that got you there. I always try to keep the basics of your craft in the forefront, making sure that every student has the tools and methods to approach any scene. I'll keep it fast paced and fun.  

Pro-tip: Marketing isn’t personal, but networking is.

About MORGAN

Quote – "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." - Maya Angelou

 

My short "Sinked Up," was an Official Selection of Outfest 2019, which got written up by Women in Hollywood as part of a "cultural moment [that] has women coming together like never before." I also directed the youth theater program at the LA LGBT Center. You can catch me starring in the digital series "The Pantheon" on The Pop Network. I'm currently developing a TV series that's gonna be sick.

 

PRO TIP: Everything you're going through is preparing you for what you asked for.

I have my MFA in Acting from the University of Connecticut and have been seen on-stage across the US.  You can probably catch me spouting some Shakespeare in person in the summers and on your TV playing some strong-willed ladies the rest of the year.
