Meet Mara

Your Audition Friend

I'm an actor just like you. So I get it -- the daily ins and outs of the business. I have a BFA in acting from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and received classical training from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London.


Additionally, I've seen it from the other side too. I've been a reader at several top LA Casting offices working on such projects as Jane the Virgin, Shadowhunters, 21 Jump Street, and Weird City to name a few.


I know firsthand what actors do that makes them stand out in the audition room, makes an impression, and the simple mistakes that catch them up. This is what I want to pass on to you. So you go into the room not obsessing about the shit that doesn't matter, but focused and ready with the preparation that does.

Why work with ME

Look, I'm not here to tell you the answers, to make you a "better" actor ... I'm assuming you're already on your way and doing that work. In fact, many of the actors I've worked with over the past few years are well established in the industry. They BOOK often, they're trained, they go to class, have a method, even a coach they like to go to. But that's not always enough. Whether it's for an ongoing job or audition, your lines should be the last thing you have to think about. So they use Your Audition Friend because all those breakthroughs they find still need to be put into their bones through practice ... and sometimes you just need a good reader opposite you to press record ;)


I'm here to support you in the process, so you can feel free to be uniquely you in your audition. Because that's what's going to make you stand out. That doesn't mean I'm an acting coach. I'm happy to give feedback if that's what will help you shine, but if you just want someone there to play off of, happy to do that too. I understand that every person and even every audition is different. Look, acting is never finished. I don't just want you to book the job ... I want you to book the job, go to set, know your lines, feel confident, comfortable and that someone has your back through it all. 


Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or concerns. I'm here to help you!

Need something you don't see listed here? Or have a special request? Let me know and we will work something out.
