25 years. One dream.
My journey began as a Video Game Director, Artist, and Designer, contributing to legendary games at companies like Konami, SEGA, and Q Entertainment. This sparked a lifelong love for creating fresh and exciting games.
Driven by this love, I founded Grounding Inc. and led the team (CCO/Creative Director) for 12 years. In 2019, I started Core 8 Inc. to chase my ultimate dream: making original, joyful games that leave a lasting mark.
My mission is to bring unique and captivating experiences to the world, spreading happiness to players everywhere.
