I am a half-Japanese Brit and proud Canadian, who recently graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism. I am efficient multimedia producer with a skills in written, audio and video storytelling. I currently work as an Associate Producer for the Global Reporting Centre who are dedicated to highlighting important neglected stories around the world.
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 collaborated closely with NBC Nightly Films, who broadcast the story in September 2019. I have also recently interned at the Globe and Mail, CBC 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 also produce and co-host the tongue-in-cheek podcast ‘Taking Hugh For Granted’ which analyses the career of actor Hugh Grant.
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!
