"Hi! My name is Amanda B. I graduated summa cum laude from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelor's degree in communications and theatre arts. I love working with people to help them find their confidence, written voice, or character. Standing up in front of a crowd or finding the most concise way to make your point in an essay is challenging. I'm here to be the extra set of eyes that are sometimes necessary. I'm also happy to just be a sounding board for you to rehearse that speech, scene, or monologue against.

My personal experience includes 6 years of teaching, 11 years of live performance, 6 years of public speaking, 4 years of directing for the stage, 2 years of developing new plays, and 6 years of collegiate-level writing.

I have a published honors thesis on the process of directing a student-written one-act. My acting, stage management, and directing website can be viewed on request.

I look forward to seeing what you can create! I am always open to feedback, as I have plenty of room to grow, too, and do my best to facilitate fast and open communication. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a session.

I am knowledgeable in the speech format Pecha Kucha. I am able to offer good constructive criticism while making sure to maintain a good comfort level for those involved.

I have strong proofreading skills, and experience in writing theses, press releases, marketing materials, plays, and poetry. I also have a background in public speaking and live performance. This background allows me to help you find your natural voice.

I have 6 years of training as a theatre artist and held positions at two professional theatres (The Penny Seats Theatre Company and The Purple Rose Theatre Company). I have experience in acting, directing, stage management, house management, set crew, light board op, props, play development, and arts management.

I would love the opportunity to work and grow with you. Please feel free to reach out and I will respond within 24 hours." less...
