About

I want to live in a concrete house.Hi there, I’m Ash! I’m an Australian photographer and art director currently living in Tokyo. By day, I’m a language teacher and by night, a freelance art and strategy director. I also love to tinker on creative projects (including this blog)! I live in Kyodo, Setagaya with Karan, where we fall in love with Tokyo a little more each day.

Prior to life in Japan I was an art director in New York for four years, a designer in Melbourne for three and an exchange student in Malmö for even less! I started this blog in 2011 to record the process of turning our Manhattan apartment into a home and it’s evolved into a journal of my travels and life along the way.
