I was born in 1974. In 2014, I completed the world’s first 24-hour one-man poetry reading performance. In 2015, I participated in the international poetry slam SLAMons & Friends(at Mons, Bergium) as a member of the Japanese team. In 2016, I won the Poetry Slam Japan competition, Poetry Slam Japan 2016. and went on to the Poetry Slam World Cup in Paris, where I advanced to the semifinals. The same year, I participated The Annual Brussels International Underground Poetry Fest(at Brussels, Bergium)and Israel Slamstival(at Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv, Israel). In 2018, I participated in the international poetry slam Richesse des langues(at Montreal, Canada). I am organizing Poetry Reading Open-Mic SPIRIT in Shibuya, Tokyo every month from 2014 until now and invited many Japanese and International poets (for example; Danish poetry slam champion Emil Nygard, French poetry slam champion JYB...) as a special guest. My hobby is Karate(Black belt).
