I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. At the age of 15, I wanted to explore my American roots and decided to continue my studies in the US. I enrolled in a small boarding school in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Later, while attending college in California as a Communications major, I discovered my passion for Art & Design. I decided to pursue my dream and transferred to the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where I earned my degree in Graphic Design in 2009.
I am currently living and working in Philadelphia as a Global Associate Art Director – UI Design / International at Urban Outfitters. I love what I do and am always interested in working on new and exciting projects!
