I Am a California-raised,
New York City-proofed
art director based in Tokyo.
I spent a better part of the past 7 years working in creative advertising at boutiques, social media firms, large digital agencies in NYC. In that time, the media landscape changed drastically—R.I.P. organic Facebook reach 🙏— while the mandate remained the same: create ideas with thumb-stopping power.
I create concepts that bring brands to life at the palm of your [consumer's] hands. Collaborating across disciplines, I have experience developing ideas that add value, entertain, inspire—ideas to make you stop while scrolling thru a crowded newsfeed.
I HAve since traded Brooklyn bagels for konbini onigiri. 🍙
Currently a graduate student of design-thinking and researching innovative interaction design methods. Outside the studio, I'm usually writing for my blog or getting lost in the stationary section of Tokyu Hands.
