I am a half-Japanese Brit and proud Canadian, who has skills and experience producing video, audio and written stories. In May 2019, I graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Before moving to Canada, I graduated with a 2:1 in History from the University of Bristol, where I was heavily involved in student publications EpigramThe Tab and Burst Radio

At Journalism school I was part of the ‘The fish you don’t know you eat’, a year-long investigation into the global fishmeal industry. This summer I continued working on the project with the Global Reporting Centre, collaborating closely NBC Nightly Films, who broadcast the story in September 2019. I have also recently interned at the Globe and MailCBC News’ London bureau and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

I do, however, have interests outside of fishmeal! My side projects include B&G Media, where I produce feature videos and take photos. I am also currently working on a podcast with a close friend that will launch in Autumn 2019. Stay tuned!

Beyond journalism I enjoy playing and watching sport, particularly football (or soccer for my Canadian friends), hockey and cricket. I am an avid Chelsea and Vancouver Canucks fan and am always happy to have a chat about their changing fortunes. You’ll also find me in Whistler on most weekends. Alongside that, I enjoy playing the piano, reading and travelling.

I am currently looking for opportunities in journalism either in Canada or the U.K. I promise I’m fun to work with!

Please get in touch,
