I was born in Tokyo in 1970. In a design company in Tokyo, I was in charge of planning, interface design, management and programming. When I got married in 2003, I seized the moment and moved to Yuzawa City, Akita, and started my own business. As a freelance designer, I provide services such as photo-taking, designs on paper, Web design, logo design and other variety of product designs. I am also active as a photographer; I have put on a solo exhibition as well as taken part in many themed and group exhibitions both within and out of Akita Prefecture. I continue to take photos with Akita’s scenery, nature, culture and a unique atmosphere that comes from its dampish air, as my theme.
