Born in Kagoshima, Japan. Spent school years in Hong Kong and New Zealand. Moved to Hawaii in 2006. First wave caught in 2009. Her early fascination was with Manga, especially the works of artists Yuu Watase, Ai Yazawa and Osamu Tezuka. In New Zealand, she discovered a world outside Manga, particularly inspired by the art of Maori tattoos. Her favorite comfort food is rice balls with mentaiko, pho, and any kine super hefty soup (not at the same time). She loves sand between toes but dislikes wet toes when not on the beach.
