Hi, I'm a multi-disciplinary Japanese designer. I have experience working on various projects, including medical, laboratory, consumer, UX, and commercial products. I love design because it's a creative process that solves real and practical needs that can make a definite impact in this world. I believe design applies the arts together with science and technology to create great experiences for the end user. I grew up in Japan, and am fluent in Japanese and English Personally, living in the beautiful state of Colorado, I love anything outdoors. Music, history, culture, and arts are also personal hobbies and interests. Always enjoy meeting new people; if you're in CO or would like to get in touch, please drop me a line whenever!
