Author and philosopher, he studied Art and Literature in Europe before starting to write about creativity and personal development. He loves playing the piano, traveling around the world and living with cats. His first work, Wabi Sabi for Everyday Life, considers the beauty of imperfection and how understanding this concept can deeply transform our lives. In his second work, Ganbatte the Japanese Art of Moving Forward, he explores the power of being resilient in our modern days.
“For the Japanese concept of beauty, in the same way that the imperfect broken cup is the most valuable, the dry leaf about to fall from a bare branch is more moving than a lush flower-filled meadow. That is the magic of wabi sabi, which inspires our life offering us a new horizon of sensitivity, growth, and self-fulfillment.”
