I am a research driven design technologist
creating playful interventions to reframe societal issues.

By conducting extensive ethnographic research, I find points of intervention in complex socio-technical problems. Then I design playful interventions that challenge these issues by utilising creative coding and physical prototyping.

My projects to reframe societal issues through design has been acclaimed internationally, being nominated as Design of the Year by the London Design Museum and being exhibited at V&A.

My recent project  Street Debaters aims to change the act of begging into a job to create public discourse through playful artifacts.

Graduating from MSc Design for Interaction in TU Delft, I have backgrounds in HCI (Human Computer Interaction) and industrial design with a strong passion for game design (And sushi!)

Originally from Japan, I am now based in the Netherlands. Currently looking for a new adventure so drop me a line if you want to collaborate!
