THE ART OF STORYTELLING
I am a Tokyo-raised, Chicago-based art director working across the fields of graphic design, photography, web, branding, video, and social media content. With over 18 years of experience in the luxury textile industry, I have developed and led various creative teams, including an in-house PhotoStudio in Chicago that I built from the ground up. Comfortable working in a fast-paced and high-demand environment, I am hands-on with multiple aspects of visual content production. My passion lies in creating a visual story behind every product to evoke an emotional connection between retailers and consumers.
Outside work, I am busy fixing and updating 120 years old brick house in Chicago while listening to Jazz and Glenn Gould.
