The Biz of Show came about from her circus family, where there is a systematic way to run your biz.  In 2012 MelRob was elected the Eastern Vice President of Actors Equity.  In 2017 she was elected 1st National Vice President of Actors Equity.

MATT CAMPBELL
Coach
Matt is a West Virginia boy who has lived the unassuming life. After leaving college (the 1st time) to run away on tour then to the Big Apple he trudged the business the ol' fashion way. Ebbing and flowing with all that comes his way. Matt loves the arts and the necessary drive it takes to succeed. He currently teaches at a university training the next generation of actors. Bridging the gap of professional actor/educator and empowering his students to always ask the questions and that "can't" doesn't exist.
