I create career-changing online classes for actors and content creators and write articles for Backstage Magazine inspired by the actors and business owners I work with everyday!
Let me introduce myself properly... I'm Heidi Dean!
I'm a social media strategist, Backstage Expert, speaker, and the founder of Marketing4Actors. My clients include Broadway Stars, Emmy Award-winners, content creators, musicians, directors, producers, filmmakers and actors just like you.
The simple answer is.... #ActorsRock!
The longer answer.... I've been in the social media and marketing world for a number of years now, but before that I was an actress for 20 years (I started at age 10!). I studied theatre at the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts at NYU and worked as a child and an adult actor in both New York and LA. I’ve had agents and managers, have done voiceovers, print work, television, concerts, commercials and played principal roles in major national & international tours. I'm also a proud member of both AEA & SAG. I know what it takes to be an actor and I truly understand it's all you ever wanted to do and what you dream about 24/7.
To help artists stop "struggling" or "aspiring" and turn dreamers into 'doers' who make their careers their own. I will show you step-by-step how to use social media to create more opportunities, build an audience, and make more powerful connections with the people you want to know.
Here are 5 things you probably don’t know about me...
I'm from sunny California where I attended the Orange County High School of the Arts
I used to own a successful gluten free wholesale bakery & catering business! If you're lucky I'll make you a cookie!
I am obsessed with cowboy boots! I have 31 pairs ya'll (I'm also obsessed with coffee.. but that's another story)!
I spent a year of my life touring Asia pretending I was 16 going on 17 (even though I was 25 going on 26).
I'm mommy to the most beautiful 5 year old girl! #ProudMom
When I was 9 1/2 I wrote "The Life Story of Heidi Dean".... (true story)
When I'm not coaching, writing, or creating fun classes for actors you'll find me hiking, cooking, gardening, playing with my baby girl, hanging with my husband (Acting Coach & Broadway/TV actor)Philip Hernandez and just embracing life!
