“The thing that makes Jeffrey stand out to me is how good he is at bringing out YOUR brilliance. He doesn’t impose anything but instead, like any good teacher, helps you discover your own excellence. His coaching is insightful, deeply useful, expertly tailored to YOU. He responds to your desires and needs (no matter how diverse or wide ranging) and is able to provide coaching that exactly fits what you’re looking for. He’s also kind, essentially ego-less, and absolutely willing to acknowledge the limits of his expertise (eg, he won’t try to sell himself to you if he doesn’t think he has anything to offer). Looking for help with technique? Work with Jeffrey. Looking for text analysis? Work with Jeffrey. Character development? Jeffrey. Stage fright? Jeffrey. Personal confidence or fear? Getting into or back into acting? Jeffrey. Want a dramaturge or editor or provider of thoughtful feedback? Jeffrey.”

Notes to Dearie | A project about Optimism and Serendipity
ALL OF MY LIFE, I have loved hiding notes for people to find.
With so much anxiety, tension, and conflict in the world right now, I’ve decided to play a little game and scatter some optimism for folks to discover, if they’re paying attention.
So, if you find a note to ‘Dearie‘, that’s from me!
I have to confess, this is very much for my own mischievous amusement… But I do wonder who might find one, and how they’ll react. Will they smile? Will they roll their eyes? Will they pass it on to a friend? Will they leave it where they discovered it? Will they toss it in the nearest rubbish bin without even reading it first? I don’t know, and perhaps it won’t make a difference to anyone but myself. But I hope Serendipity will help me share these words with people who need them.
Peace to you, and your heads, and your hearts. And if you ever find one of my notes, I hope you’ll let me know. All messages are composed, hand written, and unless otherwise noted, also hidden, and photographed by me.
