Born and raised in Los Angeles, I spent summers visiting relatives in Japan, and the differences in American and Japanese lifestyles and conveniences that I observed through behavior and physical space stimulated my interest in design. To expand my scope, I studied Danish design in Copenhagen in 2011, focusing on "human scale" in interior design, product design, urban planning, and community development. My degree in "International Literary & Visual Studies" at Tufts University allowed me to explore the U.S., Japan, and Denmark through the frame of design and cultural studies and to complete a thesis on "timelessness" in Japanese and Danish design.
My long-term goal is to promote and contribute to a responsible society in which everyday urban living is enjoyable, human-scale, and sustainable, and to contribute to new structures and ideas of design and service in our increasingly global and technological world.
