I have been teaching visual media and science communication at Hokkaido University since 2009. Until 2008, I was a director and a cameraman producing natural science programs and documentaries of NHK, a public broadcaster in Japan. Typical works include a TV program of wild western lowland gorilla taken in the Republic of Congo, Africa, and a documentary of researching mysterious lightning occurred in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela.
Currently I make videos for university public relations. For example, images of Hokkaido university faculty of science and some images of field work of researchers. And I also work as a science cafe planner and facilitator and specializes in producing e-learning content.
