"As a voiceover artist, I have had the opportunity to study with and audition for quite a few casting directors. Without question, Diakeim is a top notch professional and even better person. He truly wants those who work with him to succeed and demonstrates a continuing and caring interest in their progress. You couldn’t have a better CD in your corner nor a better pro to cast your project!" George Alan Ruth
(actor/ student)

"I learned so much and was able to immediately apply the techniques you taught and key information you shared in my auditions and callbacks while taking your class.  You are extremely passionate about teaching and helping actors become better/smarter performers.  If more Casting Directors cared as much as you do more actors would always be empowered regardless of booking the commercial or not.  The most helpful exercise for me was the Lottery Ticket Commercial of making subtle acting choices, using your eyes to express feeling. The side coaching you provided during our on-camera performances 

were phenomenal and spot on!"

SHEILA SMILEY (ACTOR/STUDENT)

The best. If you need any coaching Diakeim is the man!!! So great working with him this weekend.

ABOUT Me!

"I took Diakeim Lyles' and Valerie Adami's Commercials outside the box class and learned so much valuable information in just a few weeks. I felt prepared to audition for mainstream commercials right away. Great teaching style and content!".
