Director, producer, screenwriter
Born in Miyazaki, Japan, I studied filmmaking at New York Film Academy and have since worked on a number of film and video productions in New York City, including the Oscar-nominated feature documentary “Cutie and the Boxer”, the Japanese network TV show “Morning Satellite” for TV Tokyo, and various promotional videos and films. My latest film “Still” premiered at the Academy Award-qualifying Short Shorts Film Festivals.
My main focus is on creating and recreating experiences. 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: Certified Copy, Eternal Sunshine of Spotless Mind, Before Sunset, Y Tu Mamá También, My Neighbor Totoro, Harold and Maude, Midnight in Paris, The Science of Sleep.
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.
