I studied Japanese at Stockholm University in Sweden, and then went to study abroad in Japan at Nanzan University and Chuo University. I joined the Chuo rakugo club and performed rakugo. After getting my bachelor I studied acting at Tokyo Film Center of Arts, and then became an apprentice to Sanyutei Kouraku for four years.
Just having finished my rakugo apprenticeship, I want to perform rakugo in English and Japanese, both in Japan and in the rest of the world.
