I am a pianist, a composer, an arranger, and a supporting musician.
And also a DTP designer and a web designer. My representative works are my album covers and my webpages.
I have been building a large network in various fields such as music, plays, movies, paintings, dance, public reading, cooking, and agriculture, and have started to take an interest in the possibility of mixing piano music with something else.
Every time I do a solo performance, I collaborate with artists from various fields. In recent years,
I have branched out beyond the field of music. Due to my deep interest in food and the environment,
I got an Japan Organic Inspectors Association organic food communicator license and have been expanding my area of activity in a boundless and cross-genre way.
I arrange my music based on Pop while incorporating the essence of a wide variety of music, such as classical, Jazz and ethnic.
