Coach Darin

Before I came to Los Angeles I studied theatre and Improvisation in Chicago. I had the great pleasure of training at Second City Chicago, performing at the prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre, and flying out to London to perform at The Barbican Theatre. Things were going pretty, pretty good! So my agent encouraged me to go out to Los Angeles and try to tame the dragon that is show business.

Since coming here, I have tested for series regular roles, booked over 20 TV shows, and over 25 commercials. I have also pitched shows to E!, MTV, Nickelodeon, and a major hotel brand.

In the past 20 months, I have booked 13 television shows and 2 feature films. Some of these include Ozark opposite Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, First Lady opposite Viola Davis, She-Hulk opposite Tatiana Maslany, Lilly opposite Patricia Clarkson, and the Sony Film Devotion opposite Jonathan Majors.

How did I get these victories? Being bold as hell, networking, career coaching and making a shit ton of mistakes. Mistakes that have been wonderful lessons.

I have been in LA for many moons and have gained a lot of experience. As my Client, I will pass this wisdom on to you. I will create personal strategies with you that inspire you to create your own bold actions that support you in attaining your dreams. Hopefully, along the way, you will also discover how great you truly are.

Outside of acting I have taken multiple leadership trainings, created my own successful business outside of acting, coached actors on their auditions and careers, and facilitated a Men’s Group.
