PDF Portfolio


I am a recent graduate of the Master of Architecture program of the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape & Design at the University of Toronto.

I have over ten years of academic training (civil engineering and architectural studies) and three professional internship experiences. I am proficient in 3D modeling software such as Rhino (with vray/grasshopper), Sketchup/vray and AutoCAD, as well as 2D graphic design software such as Adobe Creative Suites (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop and Flash).

I am bilingual in Japanese and English and have work experience in both Japan and North America. I am passionate about pushing the boundaries of architectural design and exploring radical ideas of urbanism that affect us today and tomorrow. In my own time, I am an avid equestrian rider (dressage) and have been working with horses for over 20 years.
