His classes offer some of the best value you can find in Los Angeles. What sets him apart from many other acting coaches in town, is that he is putting his process into action himself. He is currently working on some of the best shows on T.V, with 2015 being one of his best years to date. Joshua teaches actors of all ages and skill sets his process with the material. He covers what to do from the time you get the script, until you are shooting it on the screen. It gives the actor a consistent way to approach the material and master the material in a timely fashion, since most auditions give less than 48 hours notice. His clients have booked series regular roles, guest stars, co stars, and feature films.
