Hello my name is Diane. I am a native of Honolulu, Hawaii. I have been residing in San Francisco, California since 1989. I am a theatre artist with credits as an actor, director, playwright, dancer, choreographer, mask maker, manager, teacher and technician. I have been sharing my art and craft with both young and adult students for nearly 30 years. I am available as a coach for actors, solo-artists, directors, and public speakers. I am also available as a script doctor for your writings for stage and screen. Whether you have a well developed craft and are taking your art to the next level, or are an aspiring performer or public speaker, I am available for both private and group lessons, as well as consultations.
