Essentially, what I do best is connect people. I use my experience as an actor to assist people to perform better. Whether that performance be on screen, stage or at work and in their personal life. Connection to others is what produces meaningful perfomance. My passion is in dissmeniting happiness and fulfilment through my coaching. I combine years of study and life experience in my performance training. All of which are realized through training programs that are  (hoprefully) informative, helpful, inspiring and, even life-altering. Years of training and experience in a range of disciplines are applied to my coaching work.


I’ve been an acting coach, instructor and teacher for nearly two decades in Los Angeles, Prague and London. I offer advice, provide coaching in a variety of acting tecnhiques and design courses for both actors and non-acotrs alike.

I offer everthing from scene-study and improv classes to casting preparation, public-speaking and presentational work, performance anxiety, kids acting training and more.

I was a regular tutor a the Actor’s Centre in London from 2010 to 2020 when they closed.

Recently, I’ve launched Offstage Acting, an acting academy that offers both in-person workshops in London and online classes and courses. 

"I just wanted to thank you for the workshop. I found it very insightful and it has cleared up a lot of questions I had... I really enjoyed meeting you and hearing your anecdotes; listening to those gave me a little insight into the experience. So thank you."

This transformational coaching comes in the form of a method called “The Middle Line” developed as a means to connect people and overcome all differences. Todd has been studying for over a decade towards the development of this method and it is his mission to bring a means of unifiying all people together under a common recognition of the immediate necesity to come into care and concern for each other. The answers we seek must come from a place of balance. No more extremes from right or wrong, pro or con but rather, we must connect together on the middle line.
