Born in Tokyo, Japan. Spent childhood In London and Arlington, VA for 10 years.
Studied architecture at Waseda University in Tokyo.
As an architect, designed everything from furnitures to gymnasiums.
Seeking to fulfill my curiosity about the world around, I began studying, exploring, and experimenting with the world of photography.
My recent work is rooted in Japanese philosophy, which concentrates more on "the State" of things rather than "the Thing Itself".
