Kawaoka Coaching

Sets, audition rooms, and studio parking lots are unpredictable, but your acting doesn’t have to be.

We offer you the preparation you need so you can relax wherever you are. We empower you to effortlessly listen, breathe and respond in your own unique and beautiful way.  While we don’t ascribe to one technique, we have in-depth training in everything from sense memory to script analysis. Together we will find what works best for you. 

Whether it's for a self tape, producers session or a shoot, we're here to help you prepare for the next big thing.

Kawaoka Coaching specializes in collaborative relationships with agencies and management companies and has found great success in developing talent and reinvigorating careers in conversation with actor representation.

Devin Kawaoka, originally from New York, is a working actor who loves the process.  

As a teenager he trained at every summer-camp/college-prep-program he could. When that wasn't enough, he attended NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Twice. The first time as an undergraduate in the drama department where he rolled around on the floor a bunch.  And the second time at Graduate Acting on a full scholarship where he cried a lot and received his MFA. His performance Off-Broadway in Unnatural Acts at the Classic Stage Company was awarded the Rosemarie Tichler Award.  He also has been seen on TV and film in Criminal Minds, The Path, Under the Silverlake and Submission.  

When he's not onstage or in front of the camera, he's happiest spending time with you working on your auditions. He's obsessed with them, and more importantly, in your personal growth as an actor.
