Ariel Cohen grew up in Yarmouthport, Massachusetts. She attended the University of Maine at Farmington where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. After graduating she spent a year working in Boston as an Assistant Stage Manager in professional theater. She realized that as much as she loved working backstage she wanted to pursue both her writing and her love of acting. This led her to California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Here she has been lucky enough to work with a marvelous faculty and amazing classmates. She also got back to her theater roots and performed with local professional theaters Look at Me Theater, Starving Artist’s Shakespeare Company, and her theater family the Left Coast Theater Co. of which she is an active company member. She would like to thank her parents, sister, and her Gentleman for their love and support.
