Born in Heidelberg, Germany to an American military father and Japanese mother. Moved around Europe for the first three years of my life before my family settled in Olympia, Washington, my father having been stationed at what is now Joint Base Lewis-McChord. To date I have written-directed-shot-edited two short films; the latest a training film commissioned by Providence Health. I am currently a high school senior, and am involved in numerous extracurricular activities including theatre, sports medicine, and FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America). I also serve as the assistant editor of 'The Hawk', a student-run newspaper and webzine.
