About/ Contact

I’m a multidisciplinary designer and illustrator based in Brooklyn, NY. I was born and raised in Osaka, Japan, and graduated from School of Visual Arts with BFA. I enjoy storytelling through various medias and forms of design.  After working as a full-time motion graphics designer at Brand New School and Stardust, I have been freelancing for various agencies, design studios, and production companies. I’m always happy to meet new friends and collaborators. Please find my contact below.
