Hi! I'm Hannah!
An actor, acting coach, and owner of HBBiz for Actors. As a professional actor of over 12 years, I bring my own experience and knowledge to the table, while also extending a supportive, cheerleading voice to the actor, easy to learn instruction, and prices EVERY actor can afford.
Here at HBBiz, I offer everything from demo reels and audition coaching, to remote self tape coaching and career consultations. Take a look around, let's work together, or learn more about how I teach and my credentials below!
My Teaching and Coaching Style:
I began my training at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, and continued my training at various acting studios in Chicago. I am a current student at Black Box Acting Chicago, which specializes in Meisner and Viewpoint work. As a coach, my goal is to get you to the truth of the scene and human you are portraying, whether you are auditioning for a one liner on a One Chicago show, a lead in the latest indie film, a student film, or a commercial. I don't believe in 'acting' or 'characters', I believe in being and in portraying humans. As a teacher, I also strongly believe in positive reinforcement and that true growth happens one step at a time, not all at once.
As a professional actor of 12 years, I've been in over ten short and independent films, most recently working with Lakefront Pictures. I've starred in various professional theatrical productions in Chicago and Milwaukee. I also worked as a personal assistant to a prominent talent manager in LA/Chicago, and also behind the scenes in a renowned acting school in the Chicago suburbs.
