I'm a writer and producer currently working in documentary television with several narrative projects in development.

 

I have over a decade of experience as a columnist for Mainichi Weekly, advertising copywriter, and in non-profit development communications.

Also, I am very interested in the nature of consciousness and awareness and am working to bring ideas from the scientific and scholarly study of consciousness into print, radio, television, and film.
