En 2005, fue nombrado compositor residente y director asistente de la Sinfónica de Torrance.

Nació en Hamamatsu, Japón, la ciudad de la música y de los instrumentos. Comenzó su aprendizaje musical a la edad de 15 años. Obtuvo un "Bachelor of Music in Media and Commercial Writing" y un "Master of Music" en Dirección de la California State University, Northridge (CSUN). Además, obtuvo un título en Cine del Santa Monica College.

Estilo musicalEditar

Sus obras corales, especialmente para coro a capella, están repletas de armonías ricas y coloridas, que dan sensación de movimiento gracias a las líneas vocales que se mueven individualmente y en registros cercanos. Sus obras sinfónicas poseen una brillante y luminosa orquestación, con un claro sentido melódico, fruto de su experiencia como compositor y orquestador en Hollywood.
