Hi! I am emi.


This is a picture of me running the National Snowshoe Championship race. (yes, there is such a thing!) I wasn’t joking about my snowshoeing.  Modern snowshoes don’t look like tennis rackets and they are made of lightweight aluminum frames.  I am one of those crazy people who runs marathons for fun.  I truly enjoy running on trails and to be in nature.

I am originally from Japan although I only lived there for 5 years. I moved a lot as a child and grew up in several different countries. I have an undergraduate degree in Industrial Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. I spent my last 10 years in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I designed in-store experience and environments for Best Buy.  I also worked as a freelance graphic and product designer for different companies and organizations over the years.  Below is one of the projects I worked on with couples of my friends.  The bear is called RB and I modeled the 3D character for the production of this toy.



My older work is on coroflot and I am hoping to get my website up and running this year.  You can also find me on Facebook and Tumblr <-I haven’t updated this in many months.  You can also find me running on bike paths and streets.
