I am exploring the world of interactive and creative storytelling through technology at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). Through animation, robotics, coding and electronics, I seek to educate, entertain and improve the world one laugh and one interaction at a time.
I am bilingual in English and Japanese with a background in media, news and comedy.
When I am not working with power tools, I am performing stand-up or storytelling in New York City. My hobby is to create elaborate photo shoots of my poodles dressed as anything from celebrities (Amy Winehouse, Abe Lincoln, Mouseketeers) to ordinary people (fishermen, fire fighters, ring masters).
