I was born in Hawaii, lived in Japan during my childhood (now bilingual Japanese-English), went to Illinois to study engineering but switched my major to music part way through. Came to Los Angeles for schooling and work and have been here since.
Located in the Los Angeles area but can also do remote work if needed. If you need to contact me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect to one of my profiles above!
