I live in New York City, and I make movies. I generate ideas, write, direct and edit them.
For me, it’s about experience. My goal, regardless of whether I’m working on a romantic comedy or a documentary film, is to create and capture the experiences that make life interesting.
I love free-spirited, imaginative and vibrant movies about seemingly ordinary people. Here are a few of the films that inspired me: The Science of Sleep, Before Midnight (Before Sunrise & Before Sunset as well), Y Tu Mamá También, My Neighbor Totoro, Midnight in Paris, Certified Copy, Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind.
I also love working with clients to shape and realize their own vision. Please contact me if you have a project that could use a little magic.

Here’s my short bio
I was born in Miyazaki, Japan. I studied filmmaking at New York Film Academy and have worked on various film and video productions in New York City. My latest film “Still” premiered at the Academy Award-qualifying Short Shorts Film Festivals in 2012.
I also worked on the Oscar-nominated feature documentary “Cutie and the Boxer”, a Japanese Network TV show, Morning Satellite for TV Tokyo, and a number of promotional videos and films for various clients.
My major influences are Michel Gondry, Hayao Miyazaki, Woody Allen, Richard Linklater, David Lynch, Alfonso Cuarón and Abbas Kiarostami. My secret ambition is to direct a movie adaptation of ‘Wild Sheep Chase’ by Haruki Murakami.
