I grew up in Tokyo until I was sixteen years old (I spent most of my youth playing Nintendo). I love collaborating with creative directors and clients to help elevate a brand's vision. My images/film tend to be playful, colorful, whimsical, and lighthearted. I have years of experience working in advertising, and people tell me my creations feel real, relatable, and approachable while, at the same time, manage to be totally fresh, unexpected, and fun. My strength and joy is finding ways to make the ordinary exciting. It makes me REALLY happy when my pictures/footage make people smile.
I am always up for brainstorming ideas and refining concepts.
I LOVE both motion + photo.
