Okinawa City, August 2016

I am a graduate student at The University of Tokyo in the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, where I study and document Japanese society and its relationship to war and the past. In 2018, I graduated from Columbia University with Honors in History. I have interned at Esquire Magazine and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholar. 

My photographs have appeared in Esquire, Elle, Vice, Metropolis Magazine in Tokyo, and the Columbia Daily Spectator.
