My passion for photography isn't very complex. I love art, I love seeing things, and I like to remember the world through photography. My life has been shaped through skateboarding and through my travels. I lived in Japan for a long time, met my amazing wife, had my beautiful daughter, and now I am settled down in Portland, Oregon. 

I work pretty heavily within the skateboarding community and I wouldn't have it any other way. It allows me to work with friends, keep skateboarding as a huge part of my life, and most importantly... have fun every day. 

Now for the Japanese viewers out there.
