Arcadia is forthright, honest, respectful, and communicative. She knows her stuff.
She was one of my biggest role models & treated me with respect while working with me. She pushed me in all the right ways
Conrad is a pinnacle of theatre and literature knowledge. She does an exemplary job at cultivating her wisdom into real life skills, important skills for young adolescents that were not taught by other teachers. The way she digs out your potential is engaging and transformative.
She has a lot of experience and is very good at helping you identify and double down on your strengths, as well as develop areas that need improvement. Very consistent, I had a truly irreplaceable experience being coached by her.
I like to connect with them via text or phone first to get a sense of who they are and what they want to get out of the process.
I have been a theatre arts teacher and acting coach since 1994, was raised in the film and television industry, and have a BA from Vassar, an MA from San Jose State University and am well versed in the teaching of acting technique from Stanislavsky to Meisner, Michael Chekhov to Adler to many hybrid acting forms and techniques.

I felt a strong calling to this work and began in college. I run the Theatre Arts program at Cupertino High School and have since 2003 and was Teacher of the Year in 2018.
Everyone from 4 year olds to adult working actors in their golden years. Casual theatre students to collegr auditions. Working Broadway film and television actors.
I see wonderful boosts in self confidence every day in my students! I also love it when their hard work pays off and they book work as actors based on my coaching.
Talk to teachers and make sure you feel comfortable and motivated!
