Born of Hawaii, I’ve had the fortune of working both in Hawaii and New Zealand writing, directing and producing independent and commercial projects. Through my travels I worked alongside the New Zealand Film Commission and created my first short film as a student in 2013.

I’ve been in local television since then, building my understanding of the production process from concept to broadcast. My latest project focuses as an independent documentary exploring my Japanese heritage within infamous Fukushima.

Crazy supporter of all fresh, local grinds and nonstop believer in balancing work, play, health and education.
