From the time Stefani was a child she has found herself on the stage. Her passion for singing and acting lead her to attend Idyllwild Arts Academy during her high school years, SUNY Purchase Acting Conservatory for her BFA, and finally YALE School of Drama where she received her MFA. Her passion for teaching and artist development began while at YALE coaching fellow students and as the co-artistic director of the YALE summer Cabaret. Since then Stefani has coached actors, dancers, musicians, songwriters, screenwriters, even preachers, and CEOs on-stage presence, confidence, story development, and performance. She was the founder of Hourglass Independent Media and co-owner of ReAmp Recording Studios one of Southern California’s best recording studios. She sees the value of artist development and understands the obstacles in front of young artists. She has a passion for changing the narrative that major labels and studios have created for up-and-coming artists and believes in building a company that supports all those involved in making great artistic works. Stefani is an award-winning actor and songwriter herself and has seen firsthand the abuse and corruption of the entertainment industry.
