I was born and raised in Japan. My first dream was to be an astronaut. When I was 7 yrs old, my parents took me to the United States to see NASA in Florida. I didn’t understand English back then, but I was intrigued by the visuals and the wonder of space. My second dream was to be an architect, so I decided to go architecture school in Japan. I really enjoyed an environment where functionality and creativity live together. After I graduated from high school, My friends and I started our own publication business. It was total failure, but really fun and filled with new experiences. We had some small victories. Now I am a graphic designer that observes and interpolates like an astronaut, I construct with meticulous detail like an architect, and cast a wide net of ideas like an entrepreneur. I’m a recent graduate of ArtCenter College of Design with BFA graphic design specializing in visual identity development, and spatial, print and interaction design. I am curious and passionate about transcribing complicated subjects into visual language that is understandable for the common audience.
