Ben’s approach to coaching clients is focused on finding a personal connection to the material, celebrating your own uniqueness, and allowing it to come through by making quick and creative choices. Above all, Ben believes in working from the spirit of play and joyful in the moment exploration (after all, it’s called ‘playing’ a role for a reason, right?). After years of cultivating this philosophy in the trenches of the entertainment business, it has proven successful many times over in his own auditions and work as well as for his clients. It’s not the bells and whistles that get you the job, it’s being your unique self. Remember…there’s only one you in the world, so show them that!
