My expertise as a coach comes from the trials and errors of my career as an actress and writer.  After graduating from Interlochen Arts Academy I made my way to Los Angeles at the age of 18.  I went on to work as a series regular on Days of Our Lives and have made several guest and recurring appearances on CSI, Smallville, Without a Trace, Rizzoli & Isles, Everwood, Cold Case, All of Us, Charmed, and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior amongst a handful of feature credits.  Two feature films that I have written have been optioned and are set to shoot in 2014 along with the release of my graphic novel.  I push my clients to have a strong work ethic and utilize their tenacity, perseverance, and ability to take risks, because I believe everyone can find their place in the entertainment industry with those elements in play.  I love guiding actors towards creative ways to advance their career and to feel fulfilled as artists and CEOs of their business.

I currently make a living as an actor; I work in commercials (70+), hosting, voiceover, television, theatre, and print. I’ve worked on both coasts and around the globe, including Dublin, London, and on the Atlantic, Pacific, Caribbean, and Mediterranean Seas. I live in Los Angeles, but called Manhattan home for 11 years. I freelanced with 12 agents before choosing my current representation. I spent my first two years in New York as an advertising account executive and copywriter for Broadway shows and subsequently worked as a career coach (where I found one of my callings!). I’m proud and touched to say that I help many actors realize their dreams. If you’d like to know more, check out www.BrianPatacca.com, follow me on Twitter or learn about me at About.Me/BrianPatacca. I hope to see you at an audition soon. Give your career a kick in the AAS (Actor Accountability Salon)!

Graduating with a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Orlando Shakespeare Theatre in Partnership with the University of Central Florida, I have taught everything from Theatre 101 to Acting for Majors at the University level; at OST I was an actor in residence, intern in the office of marketing and grant writing, educator in Shakespeare classes for young adults, and tackled all of the above while publishing my thesis. My MFA background taught me that making a successful life in Los Angeles has to be about learning to combine the art of business and the art of…well….art! And that’s what kicking AAS is ALL about. I am proud to have been with the Brian and Brian Actor’s Accountability Salon in it’s inaugural steps, and thrilled to be helping salon members discover the tools that are aiding them in living the life of an empowered actor.

I’ve been a working actor in NYC since 2007. I spent my nights and weekends in basement theaters on the Lower Lower East Side, dreaming of finally making it to my own sitcom. Years later I was introduced to innovative, empowering marketing training, and I immediately started booking high-profile, prime time shows like 30 ROCK, SVU, THE GOOD WIFE and BLUE BLOODS, along with a bunch of cable series and films. Needless to say, I haven’t looked back since! Smart, savvy, relationship-based marketing has become my keystone. I firmly believe that a clear, focused goal + taking consistent action to build quality relationships will bring magical things into your life and career! I am an enthusiastic do-er: I love crafting dynamic, empowering (and yes, scary) plans for my clients and watching them blossom! Nothing makes me happier than for artists to blast through their perceived limitations by sharing their authentic selves.

My deep passion is facilitating coaching conversations that cultivate clients’ courage to live life powerfully, vulnerably, and wholeheartedly. In 2013, I founded a life coaching and private yoga company that serves to illuminate the inherent power in human beings. My yoga practice and work as an instructor have made me keenly aware of the importance of balance: When we are successful in our lives, we are successful in our careers… there is no separation. I am thrilled to be coaching actors to create and design fulfilling careers, rooted in power and choice. I love seeing clients take the reigns of their careers and start to call the shots. Let the power, mastery, and accountability begin!
