I am a translator/interpreter, art writer, and curator/organizer focusing on Japanese and Asian contemporary art and community-based cultural projects. After finishing MA in art/design, I studied philosophy in the United States. After returning to Japan in 2007, I started working for various art institutions in the field of publicity, curating, and translation/interpretation.
