As I grew up in my tiny hometown in Japan, I was always inspired by the great nature around my house. I naturally started to sing, dance and explore my creativities in mountains and gardens as a child.

I had a striking experience at age of 4 when I went to see first musical theater show. I was mesmerized by the professional energetic singing and dancing, and I was crying at the end of the show. That's when I decided I want to sing and dance in the rest of my life. Somehow, I felt like it is an agreement with the universe I am here to give back the great energy to the world. 

​I was always different from all the classmates in my small hometown deep in the mountain and was constantly wishing to fly to other countries and meet people from all over the world.

 After I studied Voice and Dance many years in Japan, ​I came to NYC. I have been living here for 12 years since then.

I fell in love with NYC. The city makes me feel so natural and strong.The city is filled with creative spirits and I love interacting with all the people who somehow ended up here. It reminds me how we are all uniquely created for each other, and the city teaches me to just to be myself. Just to be with my own expressions.
