Service Description

Upstart Services is founded on the credo of helping others achieve their highest potential.

I have spent my life in pursuit of knowledge. In between formal academic study of literature, languages and linguistics, I studied world religions, art (history, painting in oil and watercolor, sculpture, pottery in Japan and antiques), music, creative writing, technical editing, comparative cultures, animal behavior, and nutrition. I have performed in drama (stage and cinema) as well as teaching performance. I taught in adult education and high school and was a program director at a community-based refugee resettlement non-profit corporation.

While teaching English over 30 years, including five in Japan, I attended San Jose State University for a BA in American Literature and an MA in Linguistics. I am a Master Practitioner of NLP, a Performance Coach and Hypnotist, I studied Alcohol & Drug Counseling at CI of San Jose, and I am practicing HR.
