My story. Born in New York, raised in Tokyo. 

My photo journey. One major life event in 2016 inspired me to quit my day job and pursue my passion for photography. I learned just how precious life is when my dad fell ill, and knew I wanted to establish my independence by starting my own business. 

With my large cheerleading squad behind me (mom, dad, rescue dog billy, and boyfriend Eric), I decided to embark on my journey as a photographer...

My home. Over the last year, I've come to learn that home really is where the heart is... and that's exactly where I've decided to spend my time, split between New York and Tokyo. 

If you're in New York, Tokyo or anywhere in between, I'd love to connect...
