Hana was born in Los Angeles to two immigrants from Japan who came to the United States in hopes of becoming jazz musicians. Growing up amongst multiple cultures, Hana has always had a strong love for imagery and the moments in between. She strives to examine each subject as a human being, first, and has a deep love and admiration for the delicate balance between strength and vulnerability.
Like her parents before her, she remains in search of adventure, live music, and fun waves.
