When did you first come to Japan?:
I was born in Chiba prefecture and lived there until I was 5 years old, and for the next 10 years of my life I grew up in Sydney, Australia. Since the age of 15 I have been back living in Tokyo.

I particularly enjoy frequenting art galleries, local cafes, and independent cinemas.
