And….that’s a wrap! Artistry Asia Stars On Ice 2016 was AMAZING! Thank you to everyone who played a part in organizing the event, to all the people who took the time to come watch, to all the skaters for a memorable time, and especially to kana Muramoto and Chris Reed for the lovely choreography! I’m so glad I got the chance to participate and hopefully I’ll be coming back next year! THANK YOU!!!
Last year didn’t quite go the way I hoped, but I gained a lot of valuable experience both as an athlete and as a person. I feel that now is the time to embrace new ideas and look for opportunities, even if that means going back to the roots. At any rate, I am still proud of what I managed to accomplish last season, and I am determined to keep building upon my previous successes, no matter how small.
I hope you’ll enjoy these videos, which are the culmination of all my hard work throughout 2014.
And, as a bonus, here is a little sneak peek at what’s in store for 2015!

I actually started learning ice dance in Redwood City, when I was seven years old. My first coach, John Dowding, was one of the best coaches I could have asked for. He was gentle, he was kind, and he was always very patient with me, going over the exercises and fundamentals until he was sure that I had mastered the skill. I have much to thank him for.
In the past couple of years, I have also had a lot of fun participating in the annual Bay Area Ice Dance Weekend with the BAID (Bay Area Ice Dancers). And I always enjoy skating with my friends during the social ice dance sessions on Sundays at San Jose.
