Co-founder and CEO of newly launched record label, Frank Renaissance, bringing Japanese artists to a global stage.
“Don’t be fooled by the suited salaryman’s march during the busy morning commute–there is a treasure trove of rampant creativity and energy that lies underneath. I’ve grown to love Tokyo more and more each year that I’ve lived here, through new experiences that I’ve been introduced to by people that I’ve met to new experiences I’ve introduced them to: the city is just that vast. Tokyo is also the real city that never sleeps (and I say this being born and raised in New York). Because the trains stop at 1AM, the cities hubs stay open from 1-5AM until the first trains start running, along giving the city a second wind in the waning hours of the night. Tokyo bucks the phrase “nothing good happens” after 2AM. I don’t think I’ll ever know everything about the city, nor do I plan to, but am learning new things all the time along the journey.”
