Throughout his career Dov has been committed to growing his craft and studying technique while seeking out the world-class teachers. Dov began training in Linklatter Technique with David Smukler and Natsuko Ohama as well as Meisner at the Atlantic. Upon moving to Los Angeles Dov trained with legendary coach Sandra Seacat who's Jungian dream work helped Dov lessen the perceived divide between character and self, then continued with the excellent Kerrie Keane who emphasized Energetic Openness and Spontaneity. Dov then studied with Michael Beckett who's been teaching at HB studio for over 50 years and was trained by founding teachers Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen, where his understanding of the finer points of craft, the role of the artist and technique have been sharpened.
Dov has been coaching actors for auditions and roles for many years and has started his own audition technique class; The Art Of Auditioning, where he synthesizes the various methods and techniques with his lifetime of audition experience. Dov is managed by Anonymous Content and Abrams Artists.
