About me

Hi! I'm a filmmaker, photographer, writer and occasional translator. My specialties are underground music, movies, anime and Japanese baseball, but I'm up for anything. Let's do something creative together.

My Creations

  1. I directed, lensed and cut this music video for the up-and-coming Tokyo band Looprider.

  2. Directed, shot and cut (oh, and drew the titles! by hand!) this Shinya Tsukamoto-inspired dystopian music video for Slovenian hip-hop master N'toko.

  3. I interviewed the legendary artist on opening a series of galleries in an aging mall, why Westerners see his art differently to Japanese people, and why he collects his own beard hair (no, seriously).

  4. Traced the Big G's steps for Time Out Tokyo.
