hello 

A LITTLE 

about me

It has always been very difficult to define who I am, so let me throw a few facts at you to give you a bit of a framework to my life.

I’m originally from Sydney but have lived in London for over 15 years now. I have a degree in Psychology, a partial degree in Architecture, a Diploma in Sports Massage and a Diploma in Journalism.

I worked at BBC Studios for 12 years but I left my life as a Sales Manager to run my own lifestyle & wedding photography business and start my own web design business called Kokoro Creative

I am also a published electronic singer/songwriter/producer called Michiko, a shortfilm maker, a scuba instructor, a Reiki practitioner and I consult for small businesses, particularly in support of other women setting up on their own.

I’m an only child to German & Japanese parents. I’ve lived in Australia, Germany, Czechia, Indonesia and the UK (in no particular order) and I’ve spent a lot of time travelling in remote parts of the world. Being an outsider is basically the story of my life. One that I embrace.

I’m currently studying, working on a book and enjoying a quiet life for little while.

I’m not sure how much this bit matters, I guess it sounds impressive, so until I have something better to share in this space, here goes.

My photography has been published in many publications including Lonely Planet Guidebooks, Rough Guides, DK Eyewitness Guides, The Guardian, Observer Magazine, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan as well as numerous wedding blogs such as Rock My Wedding, RockNRoll Bride, London Bride, Whimsical Wonderland Weddings, Boho Weddings and more. My images have also appeared on several fiction book covers.

My music is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and all good digital music platforms.
