Born in Tokyo, Japan

Lives & Works in Paris, since 2007

With several years of experience in the same industry in Japan, I finally got my hands on a job in Paris in 2007. I have been here since.

At the age of 40, I reached a crossroad in my life. I had to make a decision. Should I continue to work at my company or resign? I thought of it over and over. Finally, I decided to leave the French gaming company that I belonged to. I admit, It was a tough choice. For the obvious reason that a foreigner at my age might have a difficult time of building a new career. However, I felt embarrassed staying in my comfort zone without much enthusiasm anymore.

As a kindergartener, I loved to draw original princesses, ignoring the assignments given to me in drawing class. I would put on boys' shoes while cutting my hair very short. Looking back, when I was in high school in Japan, some people think I was weird. Teachers were disappointed with my decision to study Fine Arts in the university. I was tired of the uniformity of trends and values around me.


Living abroad has been a childhood dream of mine. I wanted to live in a place where I can be my true and better self, doing what I liked.

When I went abroad for the first time as a high school student, the adults I met there often asked me, "What is your dream?" They encouraged me, and that was a turning point for me, and since then I have focused on what I really want to do.


I'm attracted to things and places where humans once dwelt through the overlap of time. 


Ever since I was a student, I've been really interested in what stirs my heart. And I've been moved forward by such things, people, and experiences.


Now, I want to be someone who has such a power .
