Born and raised in Yokohama, Japan.
Studied Film & Television at Savannah College of Art and Design.
Currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
I believe in the poetic power of storytelling that transcends social and cultural boundaries to speak to human nature and the complicated circumstances we continually find ourselves in.
I love chai & ramen.
(Feel free to reach out for a list of good ramen spots in NYC!)
My great-grandfather was a novelist named Akatsuki Kanbayashi.
