About


Hi! I'm a Japanese/Swiss Design Technologist and Innovator currently based in Zurich, Switzerland. At the moment I am working at Verity Studios as a Research Engineer to develop new products for drones in the entertainment industry. I'm also tinkering on side projects all the time, mostly interested in creating products and experiences that improve human interaction with the world around us.
I believe in the intersection of fields and hold degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Design Innovation and Digital Design.
Currently excited about all things automated and the intersection of physical + digital product/experiences. Getting started with ML, playing with air quality sensors and tinkering on a reprap 3D printer.
