Photographer. Story-teller. Adventurer.
My photography mirrors my heart. I love this crazy world we live in and the beauty and stories I see all around inspire the creativity I pour into my photography.
I was born and raised in Japan and now live in Kona, on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. My work as a photographer has taken me to weddings, both big and small, and to precious moments with families and their kids. My documentary work has taken me to far off countries, to mountain tops and remote villages, to busy streets and crushing crowds.
Everyone has a story to tell. What's yours? I'd love to meet you and discuss your epic adventure, your wedding day or family gathering, your business gala or upcoming graduation, or anything else you may have in mind!
I've had the incredible privilege to have my work published by local magazines and newspapers, by blogs and internet news sites and by National Geographic (January 2016 issue).
