Brief Biography: 

I am a Japanese consultant, social innovator, impact entrepreneur/coach, researcher and practitioner in New Zealand. I am also an interdisciplinary practitioner with a focus on system, complexity and design thinking across service, project and community development initiatives to tackle complex and wicked challenges with consumers, private organisations, social entrepreneurs/Startups, NGOs and/or government organisations.

I have several years` experience in innovative, multi-agency, co-design and community development project initiatives and delivery in Auckland and Hamilton, Aotearoa New Zealand. I am passionate about co-designing and co-producing new and innovative, community/social development and age/culturally-responsive health, mental health, addiction, climate action and homelessness project initiatives, and the service development of such initiatives. I am also passionate about cross-sectoral, collaborative and glocal (global-local) service and system design, development and practices. I have created several social enterprises in the field of mental health, homelessness and climate action and supported a range of ‘start-ups’ via consulting and a variety of programmes.

My focus is on social change projects, particularly in housing/homelessness, mental health, addiction, climate action and social enterprises, I am keen to be invited to work with other researchers, designers, community development practitioners, councillors, architects, entrepreneurs/coaches and/or others who prefer to work in more collaborative, interdisciplinary and participatory approaches in projects.

I have a Masters in Applied Social Work (MAppSW) from Massey University and a member of several organisations, including; International Association for Community Development (IACD), Australasian Housing Institute (AHI), Rakau Roroa/Tall Tree network, and Aotearoa New Zealand Evaluation Association (ANZEA).

My aim is to be a practitioner, impact entrepreneur, mentor and/or lecturer/educator who responds to "the enormous challenges of valuing the power of healing relationships and be fully professional and fully human." (Bland, Renouf, & Tullgren, 2015, p. viii).
