I am a natural born performer. I studied a mix of acting techniques for the past ten years from the schools of Sanford Meisner, Stella Adler and Uta Hagen. I love creating art whether it's in front of the camera, behind or both. It's the truth I seek. And sometimes it happens to be funny. I love when that happens.

"Burstein gives a FEARLESS performance!"
— THE CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, "Veronika's Birthday"

"The only actor to show any kind of VITALITY or CHARISMA is Jessica Burstein...Burstein is the SOLE BRIGHT SPOT..."
— DVD VERDICT, "Summer Thunder"

 "Features BRAVE PERFORMANCES by Ms. Burstein and Franz Maria Quitt. The actors shed more than just their clothes in portraying these characters who are lost in the world and in search of intimacy."
 - THE PRINCETON PACKET, "Chicken"
