A bit more about me...
I started out recording my own voice on cassettes as a child and always loved drama and performing - I was president of my high school drama club and loved emceeing at events and parties. I always wanted to work in drama and spoken word.
My first “real” work was recording the audio descriptions for the “Cultural Corner” magazine at Takashima City Hall. This led to lots more recording work in my hometown and I got a taste for working as a voiceover artist.
I am a fluent English speaker, with a degree in English Language and International Relations. I did my thesis on peacekeeping operations, which comes in useful on difficult projects! I was also Head of the Announcement Department (part of the Broadcasting Club) at university. I have travelled all over the world and spent a year in Montreal, where I practiced my English every day at an International language school.

Since then, I have worked with big international clients: Google, Disney, Sony, Bosch, HITACHI, Johnson and Johnson, Novartis and the London Stock Exchange Group. I’ve recorded instructions for new products such as data.ai (app data analysis ), and apps for health, sleep and meditation.
I like working on smaller, more creative projects too: Arts documentaries, audiobooks, explainers, and e-learnings.
Interesting fact: I’m known by some as “the voice of sleep”, because the BetterSleep app that I worked on has been downloaded by over 55 million people worldwide.
When I’m not sending people to sleep, I host Japanese zen tea ceremonies. I’m used to making people feel calm (!) I love meeting people from all over the world and welcoming them to my city, Kyoto.
