I am pleased to nominate Rich Swingle as The-Best-Performing-Artist-Of-This-Decade for Theater, Film, and an outstanding Acting Coach. I have had the wonderful pleasure of knowing and working with Rich for several years now and have always found him above and beyond talented, professional, full of high energy, dependable, efficient, unfailingly punctual, and so much fun to work with and be around. In fact, I have never worked with an entertainment industry professional like Rich who gives as much attention to detail as he does in EVERYTHING. Also, his willingness to take on difficult Theater, Film, and Acting Coach projects and see them to successful completion has repeatedly impressed me over and over again.
Rich Swingle's skills do not end with his Theater, Film, and Acting Coach experienced accomplishments. He also projects a warm, cheerful attitude to everyone he comes into contact with. Rich has an amazing way of resolving conflicts and handle other difficult situations with remarkable patience and admirable tact. In the community he goes out of his way to help people in need. He loves people, works hard, and always tries to lift the spirits of those around him. I believe these characteristics represent all that is good in Rich Swingle, and I am blessed, pleased, and honored to work with him professionally and to know him personally.

When Rich and I used to rehearse for plays and auditions, Joyce would read a needed role with us. I told her then that she would become an actress before it was all over......and, praise the Lord, she has. Joyce is a natural talent. Blessings.

Joyce invites you to walk in the footsteps of the character. It's a riveting experience!
As my 'mother' in Indescribable, Joyce was focused, authentic, and took direction well. She gives not only a performance, but a compelling experience.
