Hello! こんにちは!Originally from Rochester, New York, I’ve lived in Tokyo and now currently reside in San Francisco.

I have over 7 years of design experience in many different industries such as solar pv manufacturing, fintech, property management, localization, e commerce, and more.

I practice a highly adaptable design methodology that always starts with the customer which focuses on data driven direction, scalability, accessibility, as well as product and business outcomes.

I want to make the world a better place through design.

Fun facts

I'm a former musician and self-taught guitar player. Accepted into The Berklee School of Music and Musicians Institute.

Despite my looks, I'm not ethnically Japanese. I self studied and passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test n2 exam in 2017. It's one of my proudest achievements.
