Who I Work(ed) with: 

I am a Tokyo-raised, Chicago-based art director working across the fields of graphic design, photography, web, branding, video, 3D rendering, and social media content. With over 18 years of experience in the luxury textile and home furnishing industry, I have developed and led various creative teams, including an in-house PhotoStudio and Marketing department 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/manufacturers and consumers. 

Outside work, I am busy fixing and updating 120 years old brick house in Chicago while listening to Jazz and Glenn Gould
