"I took your duo improv workshop in Miami and was by far one of the best workshop experiences I've ever had." - Miami Improv Festival Student
"I especially love learning from people I’ve seen on stage and respect." - Workshop Student
"EVERYONE in our group thought you guys were great. Everyone shared what they got from the class, and [our director] has incorporated some of your ideas into our last two rehearsals. We got just what we needed. My own thought is that we were stagnating and needed someone to say, 'get off your ass and play'." - Private Coaching Student
