I am a half-Japanese British producer, podcaster, videographer and journalist. I currently work as an Associate Producer at the Global Reporting Centre based in Vancouver, Canada. I am a proud Canadian and recently completed my Master’s at the University of British Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism.
I am also a videographer for B&G Media who report on Vancouver Whitecaps FC and a video editor for Kromatic based in San Francisco. I host my own podcast ‘Taking Hugh For Granted’ which has an audience in more than 30 countries and has reached the top 10 in the UK Film podcast charts.
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. Alongside that, I enjoy playing the piano, reading and travelling.
I am open to opportunities either in Canada or the UK. I promise I’m fun to work with!
