Megumi is passionate about documentary storytelling.
A graduate of New York University’s Tisch School of Arts Film and Television program, she has been working steadily in the documentary film industry first in post production as an assistant editor and editor and then as a freelance documentary producer and director.
She received the Rotary World Peace Fellowship which allowed her to pursue a Masters in Peace and Conflict Studies while continuing to produced films and videos.
Most of her recent documentaries have been for the United Nations and various foundations and NGOs on global and social issues. Her productions have taken her to Japan, the US, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Germany.
Her passion is to use the medium of film to remind ourselves of our common humanity.
