Andrew Sellon, MFA
Poetry Concentration Faculty
Professional Presenter, Coach and Trainer
Andrew has over twenty years of corporate sphere experience in training, facilitating, coaching, and public speaking. Andrew is uniquely qualified in the arena of presentation skills because he also brings to each engagement over three decades of experience as a professional actor. His stage performances have been hailed by the New York Times and other newspapers across the country, and he taught acting for two years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His recent film and TV appearances include "Begin Again", "Mamarosh", "the Smurfs", "The Blacklist", "The Mysteries of Laura", "The Good Fight", and HBO’s "Divorce". He is also an accomplished voiceover artist and audiobook narrator.
When coaching others, Andrew’s forte is in helping clients to shed any “performance anxiety” and to channel their own personalities to develop the spoken communication skills needed to convey their message persuasively in all types of venues. His clients learn to deliver their unique material with ease and confidence, and to engage their audiences to ensure that their message continues to resonate after the presentation.
Andrew’s clients have included large corporations, academic institutions, and small not-for-profit organizations. He is an ambassador for literacy in his role as President Emeritus of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, performing educational outreach at schools across the country for over a two decades. For a number of years, he was also Editor in Chief of the Society’s highly respected semiannual magazine, the Knight Letter, which is catalogued by a number of major academic libraries across the country.
Andrew coaches and consults from his home base in Westchester, N.Y.
