Hi there.

I was born in Japan, but these days I live and work and teach in New York City. My background is a mix of digital product design and branding. I’ve designed interfaces for every kind of screen. And I've helped lots of friends launch their small businesses.

My favorite thing to do is to collaborate with other talented people. I don’t really have a single creative process. I use different design tools, prototype early, and try to make things better every single day. I'm currently located in Brooklyn with my husband Michael, cat Mochi, and our baby who joined us in June this year.
