I am a freelance writer based in Tokyo covering human interest feature stories,
grassroots social movements, culture, arts/design, food/drink, and travel in Japan and beyond.
My articles and photographs have appeared in publications including the Japan Times, Kyoto Journal,
The Mainichi, Asahi Weekly, Tokyo Updates (official information website of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government),
and a number of overseas creative magazines.
In addition to writing, I am also a Japanese to English translator, editor, interpreter, and voice recording artist.
I work across a wide variety of fields for client projects, from corporate reports to creative advertising to academic essays.
Finally, I teach English-language courses to university students in the metropolis focusing on social issues.
I am available for assignments, and I look forward to hearing from you
to see how we might work together. Thank you so much for stopping by!
It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. Maybe that’s enlightenment enough; to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom…is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
