Meet the Team
Growing up in Japan, origami was a cherished part of my childhood, a tradition learned in elementary school that has stayed with me through the years. I bring my love for travel, coffee, and my deep connection to Japanese culture to the Origami.me team. My research skills in the Japanese language help bridge connections and uncover the rich history and techniques of origami. Life is an adventure shared with my partner, Florent, and our lovely child, Nao. Together, we fold through life, one crease at a time.
Immersed in the captivating culture of Japan for over five years, I’ve developed a profound appreciation for its arts, including the delicate practice of origami. Although I consider myself a beginner, my fascination with origami’s vast potential has grown immensely. When I’m not exploring the folds and creases of origami, you can find me enjoying a good film, tending to my garden, or cherishing moments with Saki and our little one. Join me on this journey of discovery, and let’s unfold the endless possibilities that origami has to offer.
My origami journey began 17 years ago, evolving into a profound passion throughout the years. My proudest accomplishment has been contributing to a vibrant local origami scene at UC Berkeley’s CAL Origami Club, where I helped to host local conventions and co-founded a university-level origami design class, aiming to inspire creativity within students. For me, origami offers a sense of accomplishment as I transform a flat sheet into a three-dimensional artwork. Its beauty lies not just in its complexity and precision but in the community, a shared connection, and appreciation for the art form.
With a deep-seated passion for origami that has flourished over the years, I’ve had the privilege of guiding and teaching the intricate art of paper folding on Origami.me for more than 13 years. As the founder of this wonderful community, my journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. Beyond origami, I find joy and balance in martial arts, exploring new destinations, immersing myself in video games, and playing Go. I’m also the proud author of “Everyone Can Learn Origami,” a resource I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone eager to dive into the world of origami.
