About – Acting

Hello. My name is Ken and I teach acting classes. I’ve always loved acting but didn’t really get involved until my early 20’s when I got the opportunity to be an extra in the feature film Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams. 50 Cent was also in the film. I was on this set for five days and really got insight into the process of filmmaking, especially observing the great director Antoine Fuqua.

Anyway, this led to more opportunities as an extra on some big sets including: Concussion, Love The Coopers, Mindhunter, and Banshee. Although I was “just an extra” these experiences are timeless and I’ll never forget them. During this span I also received my Masters in Education, and a couple years later I was hired as an acting teacher. I still act, as well as teach acting, and know that a good original monologue can be hard to find.

As my passion for writing increased I wrote a couple monologues for students, based on some of their improv, and figured I’d share those monologues, and others I’ve created, for all to use!
