My interests: Anything with 2 wheels! I love motocross + cycling (road + mtn) as an athlete and photographer. Plus Supermoto(!) although I don't think I will do it anytime soon...

Also, I enjoy doing portraits. I have AlienBees, PocketWizards, several backgrounds, etc. to do in/outdoor portraits. E-mail me for my sample work.

My company Opix: The official photographer for the KOZ triathlons, the Playa Del Run aquathlons, and a few Kathy Loper running races.

My website:
Thanks to my previous work, programming with Visual C++, I developed my site with shopping cart feaures (PHP + MySQL are used for this site). Better than many event photography companies' sites because of poweful search engine, easy navigation, and clean look. And I am always improving it.

Can't settle down with one:

1) I use Windows and Mac.
2) I speak Japanese and English.
3) I have done road and off-road triathlons.

Born and grew up in Japan. Living in the U.S. since December 1991. Feedback will be highly, highly appreciated.
