The Story behind the DESIGNER
I was born in Tokyo, Japan and grew up in Honolulu, HI. As the son of two internationally recognized Taiko drummers, I gravitated to creative pursuits at an early age. I moved to the New England to explore design under the Rhode Island School of Design's Industrial Design program. Learning with a hands-on process led me to find my passion in building my own work. After graduating, I moved to New York City, where I designed for the commercial furniture trade, but soon missed the studio environment. The design process I learned was always connected to a workshop, where I could truly understand the materials and turn concepts and drawings into reality.
