Born 1974 in Osaka, Japan, I studied creative writing and international relations before shifting my interest to photography. After the photojournalism program at Ohio University Visual Communications, I started my career at Anchorage Daily News in Anchorage, Alaska, as a photography intern, followed by other internships and staff positions with local newspapers in several different states. Since 2006, I have been a freelance photographer based in Osaka, Japan, specializing in reportage on cultures, social issues and lifestyles. My works have appeared on domestic and international publications, both print and online media.
