Producer/Engineer/Graphic Designer


For more than 5 years, my career as a recording engineer and music producer has evolved from Jazz to R&B to film.  My experiences as a recording engineer, my film credits include the album for Bei Xu "Lost in Translation;" and " Moonlight".  The turning point of my career was the success of Bei Xu's second album, “Lost in Translation”.  This album became the No.2 downloaded hit on iTunes Top Albums chart in Japan. The third album, “Moonlight” became the No.1 downloaded hit on iTunes Jazz chart in Japan in 2007.  In addition, I engineered on tracks for the band SFKUaNK!!. The band is collaborated with two members of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra which is one of the most famous brass bands in Japan.


In early 2007, I opened a state-of-the-art recording studio in Brooklyn, New York.

I’ve had done recording sessions with many musicians in New York. One of the artists that I’ve worked closely since 2008 is Chris Rob.  He is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer who has an array of credits to his name and worked with well-known musical artists such as  Stevie Wonder, Kanye West, John Legend, etc.  I’ve been his recording engineer as well as live show technician.  We’ve worked together to make album projects that have been released in the last year, including his latest project “Mental Notes”.  We also work together on music productions for many artists and executives, including Kanye West, Roberta Flack, Austin Brown, Drew Dixon Williams who was a former vice president of A&R for Arista Records, reporting to the legendary music executive, Clive Davis.  She facilitated the recording of dozens of Grammy nominated records and half a dozen Grammy winning records.  I’ve had a successful business partnership with her since we’ve met in 2009.  She has introduced me to many wonderful artists and producers. We’re planning to scout new artist who can be a next star.  With my recording skills and her experiences as an executive in music industry, which makes it possible to develop the whole process of what we need for music business today.


My talents also include graphic design. While assisting upcoming designers like E.Y. Wada; who won the 2007 GEN ART competition as a graphic artist, I designed the Spring-Summer Collection Lookbook.
