Acting Career

When I was a kid I did a lot theatre and TV and studied mime with Marcel Marceau.  After High School I went

to an acting school in NYC and worked as a professional actor for over ten years doing, Off & Off Off Broadway Touring Theatre and lots and lots of Regional Theatre. 

I was gaming the whole time.  I began to speak at local gaming groups on character development and roleplay-ing coaching (teaching acting lessons to roleplayers). 

Coaching Gamers

I have had a nice side career as an author of articles on gaming and coach at stores that sell roleplaying games all around the country.  There is nothing more rewarding than working with gamers.

Hi, I'm T. S. Nice,

Your Roleplaying Coach

I’m T.S.,  Your Roleplaying Coach.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

Gaming History

When I was very young I went to a Gen-Com in Chicago and performed a mime routine (mime was big back then).  Both Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson who approached me about play testing D&D.  They told me about it and I thought it sounded fun.  I’ve been gaming ever since.  I’ve played almost everything from AD&D (through its many changes), Travelers, Warhammer, ICE, Role Master, LARPs and many many others including a range of sci/fi games (Star Trek, Star Wars…)

 

 

 

Career as an Education

Afterwards I went back to college and got my MFA in Acting and worked as a professor of acting, certified in voice & movement, stage combat and acting as well as physical comedy and other more specialized acting techniques and styles.  I coach dialects, voiceover acting and speech.

 

 I was the stage combat Fight Director for five universities and taught 100’s of students stage combat over my 25 year career.  Again, I was gaming the whole time… and loved it.

 

Acting is Roleplaying, Roleplaying is Acting
