Industrial Designer at Samson Design Associates
Hi, I'm a multi-disciplinary Japanese designer. My experience covers a breadth of projects, including medical, laboratory, consumer, UX, and commercial. 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 exploring the outdoors. I spend much of my available time studying history, culture and anthropology, and the arts. I find joy in meeting new people; if you're in CO or would like to get in touch, please drop me a line whenever!
