"Stefan's improv classes were a blast!! I can't remember the last time I had that much fun! And Stef has this uncanny ability to be the most warm, encouraging supportive presence so that no matter how scared you think you are of getting up there and doing improv, falling flat, sounding silly, or making a complete ass out of yourself, he is always right there cheering you on! When you have that kind of permission to just be so fully in the moment without any inhibition, it's such a freeing fun experience!" -Lauren Auricchio, Los Angeles, CA
