I am passionate about bringing smiles to people's faces. Life is hard enough, so why not pause for a bit to smile and laugh with the people around you.
I believe that the world and it's cultures can be connected via comedy. We all want to laugh and smile and comedy can help us do that, regardless of the language it is in. Comedy can be non-verbal, multilingual and physical and that is what my comedy groups in Japan focus on to connect with a cross-cultural audience.
I really love to cook. When I travel, I like to take cooking lessons in the region I visit. Recent cooking classes were in Tuscany in Italy and Budapest, Hungary.
The group I founded was selected for the 2012 TED@Tokyo global talent search and we gave a talk entitled "Why you won't die on stage". Also, in 2013 I was invited to perform at the TEDxTokyoTeachers event.
