I'm a Time Capsule Maker.

In addition to being a photographer, I'm a Mom of two beautiful daughters, a foodie, a violin student, a Maui Marathon Finisher, a Retired Scuba Diving Instructor, a 2nd place winning boogie border and an enthusiastic cook. 

Born and Raised in Chigasaki, Japan and Move to Maui on 1995. First time I visited Maui as a tourist, I knew this is the place I am going to spend the rest of my life.  It's been more than 20 years.  I still can't believe how lucky I am to call this beautiful Island "My Home."   Pardon me for my not perfected English.  I hope you find humor in it ;-)

Being a photographer is like being a Time Capsule Maker.  Every time You look at photographs I took, you will feel the air of that day, and your emotions.  And these photographs taken on Maui will be passed on to generation after generation.   And someday, It will become your family legend.  Every shutter I click, that is what's in my mind.

Hope you liked my portfolio and we will meet and work together sometime soon.  That's another great aspect of being a photographer; I meet with a lot of wonderful people!  

Until then, Aloha!
