English (Native) Japanese (Intermediate)
I became interested in graphic design in my early teens, making fan pages for my interests and art for my musically inclined friends. In college, I learned to love design from my instructor Jim Mountjoy and began freelancing. I interned at BooneOakley / EYE Creative Lab, and studied brand storytelling with D&AD.
Philosophy on Work
I believe in doing great work for great people, I enjoy sharing stories, and I strive for ideas that surprise people, inspire them, or make them fall in love.
